More specifically, our research focuses on children with long-term medical conditions and their families, for example cancer, cerebral palsy, diabetes, HIV and colic. 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.
