Petra Nilsson Lindström holds a Ph.D. in Medical Science, in the field of public health science, works as a Assistant Professor in Health Science and is promoted to a Qualified teacher at Kristianstad University.
My research focus is overall based on a salutogenic perspective on health and empowerment processes. I conduct research in various arenas, for example working life, school and daily activities, with a person-centred and action-oriented approach. I also conduct higher education pedagogical research, mainly in relation to student-centred learning and academic teachership.
My thesis work (2010) and subsequent two post doc projects focused on work-related health in the form of salutogenic factors that make employees feel good at work; development and quality testing of salutogenic questionnaires for work and health; how survey processes are perceived and can function in work environment work and how organizations work with employee interviews.
I have been co-supervisor to the the PhD student Sophie Schön Persson and her thesis work which focused on salutogenic relationships in working life. Sophie completed her dissertation in 2019.
The current research project in which I am the project leader is called: "Grow with horse power - research on person-centeredness for increased health and personal development in daily activity" at Fulltofta Nature Center.
