About the research subject

Part of this multidisciplinary subject is nursing, this has a focus on health, healthcare, promotion and prevention for different groups of people in society. Care science extends from the very start of an individual’s life to old age and covers both death and dying. It includes:

  • knowledge of life with disabilities
  • long-term illness
  • physical and mental health

It also includes the organisation of nursing work, the conditions of nursing education, and evidence-based practice. Care science is therefore comprehensive with a clear focus on person-centring where the perspectives of persons/patients and participation in different care and care contexts are emphasised. The research is conducted across six research areas.
