Personal profile


In January 2023, I defended my doctoral thesis at the University of Borås in the field of health care science. I am a specialist nurse in prehospital emergency care and have worked in the ambulance services, general medicine, and neurology.

My dissertation focuses on the onset of sepsis from the perspectives of patients and their relatives, examining the progression of the disease and documented symptoms, vital signs, and blood tests identified in prehsopital emergency care. It also explores how ambulance personnel suspect, assess, and identify sepsis. Dissertation link:

I have a interest in research on the onset and early identification of sepsis, as well as the impact of the disease on individuals' quality of life. Additionally, I am interested in research related to intra- and pre-hospital emergency care.

Currently, I am involved in a project aimed at examining the professional quality of life, lifestyle habits, and coping strategies used by healthcare professionals in intensive care units to avoid empathy fatigue. We are also evaluating whether an intervention in the form of person-centered health consultations can enhance the professional quality of life and healthy lifestyle habits of the staff.


I teach in the nursing program and the master's program in health sciences. My teaching role focuses on scientific theory and methodology (qualitative and quantitative), emergency care, simulation and supervision of bachelor's and master's theses. My research on sepsis also contributes to my teaching in this area.

During my time as a doctoral student, I conducted 20% of my teaching at the University of Borås. I mainly taught in the nursing program and the specialist nursing program in prehospital emergency care. My teaching role focused on scientific theory and methodology, clinical examinations, case seminars on assessment in prehospital emergency care, clinical placements, workplace-based training and supervision of bachelor's and master's theses.
