Doctoral student in Health and Lifestyle. Occupational Therapist and Msc in Statistics.
Title on my project is "A sleep intervention with weighted blankets - an evaluation of sleep and well-being in children with ADHD". I'm working in the adult mental health care setting at Region Halland at 50% and conducting my doctoral studies at 50%. Areas of interest is sleep and especially treatment of sleep difficulties in children and adults with ADHD.
In my thesis the studies will be based on data from a randomized controlled trail in collaboration with BUP for evaluation of a sleep intervention with weighted blankets of the type of fiber quilt.
Research on weighted blankets are sparse and more knowledge and evidence is needed.
