Professional work

I work as a RPT in Primary Health Care in the south of Sweden since 1992. Since 2016 I work parttime (20%) with the implementation of a supported osteoarthritis self-management programme in Region Skane.


The main purpose of my PhD project is to study aspects of enablement among patients with OA. The setting of the studies is a supported self-management OA programme in primary health care.
