This paragraph is not available in English, therefore the Swedish version is shown.

The goal of my research is to improve mental health in those struck by a somatic disease in oneself or a close one. My present research mainly concerns developing, testing, evaluating, and implementing e-Mental health interventions for parents of children treated for cancer in Sweden and guardians of children tretaed for cancer in Tanzania. In my research I collaborate with parents and guardians, and national and international experts e.g. in e-Health, health economy, nursing, and psychology.
