As a PhD student in Family Medicine, my research is centered around e-health and the treatment of urinary incontinence in women.
I am particularly passionate about equity in health, and interested in investigating how we can decrease the digital divide in healthcare. I am also interested in gender and intersectionality theories.
The current focus area in my research is to evaluate the effect of a new smartphone app, Tät®II, as treatment for urgency and mixed urinary incontinence in women. The app was developed by me and Eva Samuelsson, senior professor in Family Medicine, in collaboration with ITS. It was developed as a sequel to the app Tät® which was previously developed within the research project tät.nu/econtinence.se. Read more about our apps and studies at www.tät.nu (www.econtinence.se).
The evaluation of the app Tät®II includes studying the effect in the short and long term of using the app as support for self-management, and investigating whether different factors can affect the chance of a successful treatment result.
In my future research, I aim to further explore the topics of e-health availability and accessibility in the context of health equity.
