Improved heart failure care

My work focuses on improving care for patients and families who lives with heart failure.

I work part time as a heart failure nurse and part time I work with care development at the medical department at Mälarsjukhuset in Eskilstuna, and also in primary care.

I am also the process leader for the heart failure process in the county council of Sörmland where we worked systematically to implement nurse-led heart failure clinics in primary care.

I teach in single courses in cardiovascular care, both in Linköping and at other universities. 

Within research, I participate in several different projects, both nationally and internationally, all focusing on strengthening the care for patients with heart diseases. Research areas mainly are related to improving the care and self-care of cardiac patients, and includes information and communication technology, distance monitoring and eHealth.
