Nursing and Health Care

Research in health and nursing focuses on people at all stages of life and on the responsibilities undertaken by nurses and health visitors. Our projects concern the challenges faced by citizens, patients and health professionals and take into account the societal and structural context in which the health care system operates.  

Close cooperation between hospitals, municipalities and educational institutions

Our research is an integral part of the health sector and is conducted across institutional and sectoral boundaries. We strive to create cohesion between the Bachelor’s degree programme and the Master’s degree programme in nursing (MSc in Nursing). A similar approach is applied with respect to the Professional Master’s degree programme in clinical nursing (Master of Clinical Nursing). Clinical practice is the focal point of our section’s degree programmes.

The most suitable research methods

When tackling a given research question, we always use the most suitable research methods, be it quantitative, qualitative or intervention methods or mixed methods with qualitative methods as the core component. To this we can add implementation and action research and complex interventions.

Together with national and international collaborators we continuously develop our methods and subject area.
