Research

I graduated with a Bachelor degree in nursing in 2005 and have since worked as a nurse at Endocrinology, Rheumatology, Respiratory Diseases Department and Gastrointestinal Emergency Department at Hvidovre Hospital in Denmark. Here I acquired extensive knowledge, skills in providing nursing care and treatment to patients with acute and complex admissions. In 2012 I graduated Master in Health Science at the University of Copenhagen, and have since worked as a research assistant in various research units, at the University of Copenhagen.

In 2013 I was employed at Herlev Hospital at the Medical Department O where I was offered the position as PhD student at Lund University. In the PhD project I will focus on evidence–based clinical pathway in care of older patients hospitalized with community acquired pneumonia and the implementation process will be an object of research. The project will be carried out at Medical Department O at University Hospital Herlev in the capital of Denmark.
