I am a physiotherapist and a PhD student at LU. My research area are patients with lymphedema and how they experience their health-related quality of life (HRQoL). In my first paper I continued to, develop, shorten and improve a lymphedema specific HRQoL-questionnaire, from Australia, and tested it for reliability and validity in 200 patients with lymphedema. My second is a cross-sectional study, in which I evaluated how 129 patients rated their HRQoL. In my third paper I tested the responsiveness and sensitivity of the questionnaire during two interventions. My last paper is longitudinal were I follow the patients HRQoL before and 1, 3, 6, and 12 months after two interventions.
