Associate Professor

I am a Registered Physiotherapist with a Master´s degree in Public Health. My thesis focused on the implementation of lifestyle interventions in Primary Care. My research and teaching areas are Implementation, Physiotherapy and Public Health.

Social Medicine and Public Health with focus on Implementation issues

The implementation of new methods in Health Care is a growing research field. To be of benefit for patients, new evidence based methods must be successfully implemented in practice.

My research area concerns the implementation of new methods in various fields, such as Primary Care, Physiotherapy and Patient Safety. The application of theoretical models in planning, performing, and evaluation of implementation processes helps to create new knowledge in the area.

I am also engaged in teaching regarding implementation, physiotherapy and public health. I have an interest in research methodology, in particular qualitative research methods.
