Short presentation

By profession, I am a registered nurse and authorized sexologist (Specialist in Sex Education, Sexual Health Promoter [NACS]). Academically I have a licentiate degree (Ph.Lic.) from Karolinska Institutet.

Before starting as a lecturer, I have worked in emergency departments, clinical trials of HIV, and hepatitis medications as well as HIV/STI screening. I maintain clinical contact and experience through per diem work at the emergency department and HIV/STI screening.

By profession, I am a registered nurse, Ph.Lic. and authorized sexologist (Specialist in Sex Education, Sexual Health Promoter [NACS]). Before starting as a lecturer, I have worked in emergency departments, clinical trials of HIV, and hepatitis medications as well as HIV/STI screening. I maintain clinical contact and experience through per diem work at the emergency department via Helsebemanning A/S but also HIV/STI screenings at Stockholms Mansmottagning. To me, it is essential to stay up to date clinically and to know about the everyday work-life for nursing colleagues.

My passion has, from my undergraduate years, been the health and care needs of sexual minority patients (LGBTQ). In the last few years, my focus has mainly been on the older adult. Theoretically, my work is influenced by critical theories (gender, queer, and crip theories), particularly how that intersects with gerontology.

My licentiate thesis research has focused on symptom management, adherence to a mHealth intervention, and its effect on self-care ability and health literacy in a group of men treated with radiotherapy for prostate cancer.

In my continuation from licentiate to doctorate, at Åbo Akademi University, the focus is the sex life in sexual minority men after prostate cancer treatment.
