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 an Internet-delivered cognitive behaviour therapy. 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 director of studies at the Division of Nursing Science, including direct responsibility for staffing, administration and the teaching budget at the Nursing programme and related freestanding courses.
In my role as a director of studies 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 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.
