About me

I am a registered nurse with a PhD in medical science. Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher at KI. Also, I work a Karolinska University Hospital with nursing development at the Cancer Theme with special focus on upper gastrointestinal diseases. When I work clinically, I care for patients in a surgical high dependency unite who have gone through major abdominal surgery.

Research description

In May 2019 I defended my thesis with the title: Person-centered care supported by an interactive app for patients with pancreatic cancer following surgery. The research project evaluated how an interactive app för self-care and symptom reporting to a nurse navigator could enhance the life situation för patients undergoing surgery for pancreatic cancer.

Currently I am a postdoctoral researcher in the research group of Lars E Eriksson. The project has the title “Facilitating lung cancer diagnosis: Linking the experience body and the biological body” and explore how subjective experiences can be linked to clinical changes and biomarkers, to facilitate early discovery of lung cancer and treatment follow up.

Also, I am affiliated to the research group ICare where I am co-supervising Kristina Rooth in a doctoral project which aims to evaluate the effects of av interactive app for routine self-reporting of disease-related symptoms during the first years after treatment for breast cancer.

My main interest is to enhance the life situation for patients undergoing gastrointestinal cancer. My focus lays in how patient-reported outcomes can be used in clinical practice to enhance care and outcomes for the individual patient. Another of my interests is how patient' learning can be understood and enhanced.
