As a pediatric nurse, I have worked with pediatric neurology and pediatric oncology, especially with children having brain tumors. The basis of my research interest and research area is ill children and their family’s needs. My research focuses on how health care can meet these newds. My PhD work focuses on chronic and seriously ill children with various diagnoses where I examine the needs of families and caregivers, distribution and satisfaction with care, and health economic aspects of health care in the home. The project is led by my advisor, Professor Inger Hallström.
