My studies have found that a large percentage of these patients experience fear and worries, cardiac anxiety and depressive symptoms, and use a substantial amount of healthcare resources, and thus contribute to high healthcare and societal costs. My current research evaluates the feasibility and efficacy of Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy. Research is also conducted to explore patients´, spouses´, and healthcare perofessionals´ experiences and attitudes to such interventions. My goal is to build up national and international collaboration and develop the care for this group of patients.
Leadership and teaching
I am the head of unit at the Division of Nursing Science and Reproductive Health. In my role as the head of unit it is important to me that the work is done carefully and quickly, and that it takes place in dialogue with the staff. This leads to better conditions for both course coordinators and staff who more effectively can serve students, and this also promotes a good working environment.
My teaching experience has been within the Nursing programme, primarily as a supervisor, course coordinator and examiner. My areas of speciality have been cardiology and how to care of patients with acute heart disease, as well as drug calculation.
