My name is Britt-Marie, and I am the Head of the Department of Nursing. Basically, I have a job as professor of nursing. My background in healthcare is as a psychiatric and mental health nurse. I ...

  • have an assignment as head of the department,
  • teaches in several of the department's programs, preferably on psychiatric nursing but also on qualitative methods
  • research on, among other things, self-harm, eating disorders, mental ill-health and psychiatric nursing in various contexts.
  • am the local coordinator for SWEPROF: Swedish National Graduate School on Practice- and Patient-Oriented Research in Forensic and Compulsory Psychiatric Care. 

My clinical experience as a nurse is mainly from a specialist unit for people with eating disorders but also from substance abuse care. My dissertation was about people with self-harming behavior, their relatives, and carers' experiences of care. I defended my dissertation in November 2011 and have since then continued with mainly qualitative research in, among other things, psychiatric inpatient care. In December 2017, I was appointed as a qualified teacher at Umeå University.

Since July 2015, I have had an assignment (70%) as Head of the Department of Nursing that runs until June 2024.
