Working with

Health and Healthcare


My main research areas are mental health, health promotion and user/patient participation in decisions and activities related to their health. The main target population in my research is children and young people. My research is multidisciplinary, combining health science such as nursing with social sciences (innovation studies, psychology, social work, sociology) and information technologies. My research is mainly societal demand and need driven and performed in collaboration with other researchers, companies, public sector and users. Currently, I conduct several research projects with the purpose to increase knowledge and develop strategies and interventions that increase participation of children and young people in different settings such as schools and healthcare. These research projects are mainly based on a participatory research and design process, which means that the people to whom the research is directed are involved in the construction of knowledge and interventions. I also conduct research projects regarding health promotive factors for children, young people’s and adults mental health. These research projects are mainly based on intervention and implementation studies, with both qualitative and quantitative methods.
