My research focuses different interventions in the home environments for older people and people with disabilities. This includes both the ordinary housing as well as sheltered housing facilities. Ongoing projects target: Longterm effects of housing adaptations and mobility device use for clients and society; Effects for formal and informal caregivers of using technical monitoring devices in the homes of people with dementia; Fallprevention interventions in sheltered housing facilities. Outcomes are related to the usability of the home, activity, participation, falls, as well as cost-effectiveness. The projects involve client, relative and staff perspectives and include also development of ICT-based educational platforms for staff training and support as well as the development of different implementation strategies for municipality rehabilitation staff.

A second research focus is higher education. This includes: Research use in health care practice among prior masters level students holding a professional certification, such as registered nurses and occupational therapists; and Assessment and examination of courses and learning outcomes
