Brief history

My nursing and teaching degrees are: RN, R Midwife, nursing teacher with state rector's training, rector's promotion and now university lecturer at Malmö University.

I have worked as a nurse in the intensive care unit for five years and then as a nursing teacher and i.a. taught and was a course leader in nursing education at the university in Kalmar 1988–2009 and there supervised bachelor's theses but also worked as a high school teacher in nursing and in municipal adult education. I also have university exam in network, web, informatics and media and communication science and auther to a learning tool about search services "Research on the Internet".

In order to keep up to date with the clinical operations, I have had short temporary assignments/assignments in home health care and nursing homes for the elderly at staffing companies in Sweden and Norway (in Bergen and Stavanger) during the years 2012 – 2019 but also served as a nurse at the neurological care department at Lund University Hospital as well as at the heart department at Trelleborg's hospital.

My interest in clinical care work, medical technology and drug calculation combined with an interest in nursing education has led me to write several textbooks "Medical technology for nurses", "Pharmaceutical calculation for nurses" and "Clinical care work for nurses" in the field of care published by Studentlitteratur AB as well as constructed questions for Högskoleprov care, on behalf of Enlight AB.

My research in connection with an employment at Lund University where I was part of the research group "Elderly health" under the direction of Professor Gerd Ahlström at the Department of Health and Society, has led to the publications:

2022 A Psychometric Evaluation of the Family Collaboration Scale and an Investigation of How the Close Family of Frail Older Patients Perceive the Collaboration with Healthcare Professionals on Acute Medical Wards at Hospitals in Sweden

2018 Mental health and reactions to caregiving among next of kin of older people (65+) with multi-morbidity discharged home after hospitalization
