Hey! My name is Per and I am an associate professor at the Department of Nursing and I am also an Associate Professor in Oncology. I also have a joint employment at Cancercentrum, Norrland University Hospital, Umeå. My background in healthcare is as an oncology nurse in radiation therapy.
I:
• teaches several of the department's programs / courses, preferably on oncological nursing but also in radiography and quantitative methods
• researches, among other things, on quality of life and treatment-related side effects during oncological treatment.

My clinical experience as a nurse I have from oncological care but above all from radiation therapy. My thesis work was about quality of life and side effects in patients who received radiation therapy for prostate cancer. I got my PhD in November 2000 and then continued with mainly quantitative research in oncology. In January 2012, I was appointed Associate Professor in Oncology Nursing.

 

Areas of education:
Oncology at graduate level, radiography, patient process during cancer care.
