in my 25 years in paediatric care I worked mainly with children ill in neurological and onological illness. The basis for my clinical work as well as research interest and research area are sick children and their families' needs during illness, as well as e health service's opportunities to support the families based on these needs. My doctoral thesis, under the guidance of main supervisor Professor Inger Kristensson-Hallström, focused on different perspectives of homecare services for children with long-term and
seriously illness in different stages of illness. Since my dissertation in 2019, I have continued with
studies that aims to strengthen families' selfcare during periods of illness primarily with the support of digital tools such as an application for tablets and phones. Another focuserea is to develop palliative
care for children.
