Description

The research group Care in high tech environments strives to understand and explain what it is to be a person in need of highly technological care and advanced nursing. The point of departure is the vulnerable person within; intensive care, anesthesia, organ transplantation, radiography and ambulance care where advanced and technically intense nursing is provided in order to restore or promote health. The research focus is mainly on self-management and recovery after solid organ transplantation. Extensive research is also conducted regarding person centeredness and person centered climate as well as ethical stress within ambulance care. Further a theoretical framework is developed regarding surrendering into anesthesia. We explore experiences of being a person suffering from nephrotic syndrome, pain after thoracic surgery and experiences from radiation therapy of children with malignancy. Finally experiences of pediatric intensive care is investigated.
