Implementation Science… and more
Implementation science is a fast-growing interdisciplinary field that has emerged in the 2000s to address challenges of translating research into practice.
I have contributed to building an ambitious implementation research program, which has attracted national and international interest. It includes annual Masters- and PhD-level courses, the latter with student applications from all the Nordic countries and beyond. I lead numerous implementation research projects, including several PhD projects.
My research interests also encompass health organization issues, patient safety, culture, leadership and workplace learning. I have also studied various public health issues, such as injury prevention, alcohol prevention and physical activity promotion. Writing is a passion. I have developed and lead The Art and Science of Scientific Writing, a PhD course which teaches principles of scientific writing.
My research interests can be traced to my varied background, including studies in behavioural economy, with graduation from Stockholm School of Economics (“Handelshögskolan”), and in systems development. Before I became a researcher in 2003, I had a 15-year career as organizational consultant in competence issues and as author of international books on artists such as David Bowie, Iggy Pop and Prince.
