Area of research:
eHealth literacy significance for people with T2D self-care ability and self-care support - examine attitudes caregivers generally have to Internet-informed patients and understand how this impacts on their professional role and examine how patients critically review the health information they collect over the Internet and how it affects their self-care.
Use of interactive e-health support in the care of people with type 2 diabetes - The overall aim of the project is to problematize and analyze the use of computer-based self-care support among patients with type 2 diabetes and their carers. Another aim is to study the effects of computer-based self-care support on the day-to-day work, professional role of the caregiver and for patients' disease management.
Elderly cared for institution in Västerbotten - A cross-sectional longitudinal study aimed at identifying elderly people living / cared for at special housing and hospitals in Västerbotten County.
Web training for staff working with people with intellectual disabilities and challenging behavior - to investigate the effects of a web-based training program to increase staff's ability to communicate and interact with people with intellectual disabilities and to meet challenging behaviors
Psychometry - Preparation and psychometric tests of questionnaires and assessment/screening scales.
I teach at both ground- and advanced level – especially within methodology and particularly towards quantitative method and statistics, but also in elderly care, with a focus on people with dementia and behavioral changes, so-called BPSD. I also supervise bachelor and master thesis.
