Personal profile


My research mainly regards different projects developing and evaluation the ReDO™-method . One project is organised in collaboration with the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SKL). The purpose of this project is to describe the implementation at national level of the ReDO™-method, as well as to follow up the effects of it, focusing on whether the method helps to facilitate the return to work and prevent long sick leave and if possible draw conclusions of key components for a successful implementation. Furthermore, the study aims to specifically in the Region of Skåne and the Jönköping County compare the outcome of the ReDO™-method with change in terms of return to work and well-being, with the development of individuals from a county where the method is not yet implemented on a larger scale, receiving traditional care.


The ReDO™-method is a group treatment program with a focus on balance, structure and experience in their patterns of daily occupations. The ReDO™-method can be described as a client education programs. The objective is to strengthen the participant's own ability and control in their everyday life and to give the participants knowledge and understanding of how their own unique pattern of daily occupations are developed and how this affect health. The basic idea is that by reorganizing the day-to-day occupations and the performance of them, your health will improve. The program presents no solutions but stimulates and enables a self-directed change in everyday life. By providing tools for the analysis of their own everyday life builds a motivation to changeup and the participants identify individual targets and strategies to bring about these changes. Control over one's own everyday life is expected to promote the participants' ability to return to a balanced life, including paid work and also prevent renewed absence from work due to illness.
