The significance of crying

My research area is palliative care. I have studied the significance of crying for patients and relatives. Most of my teaching assignments are in terms 5 and 6 of the Nursing Programme.

I am responsible for the independent course Care of people with dementia, worth 7.5 higher education credits (advanced level).

I am the coordinator for the work placement training (VFU) on the Nursing Programme for the municipality and home care in Östergötland.

My work assignments on the Nursing Programme also include acting as supervisor and examiner for thesis projects at C level.
