The research focuses on three areas: 1. Promote health in early childhood by supporting parents and children 2. Hospital-based home care for children with chronic illness 3. Knowledge about the implementation processes of child-centered care. The research group has a multi-disciplinary perspective and the research involves paediatric nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, social pedagogues, psychiatric nurses and radiotherapists. Psychologists and doctors are also linked to the research group.
