Personal profile


My research field is health professions, learning and collaboration in the healthcare system. Over the last many years, I have researched how new work tasks and changed working conditions in the health care system shape the identity of health professionals. I focus on mono- as well as interprofessional work within nursing, physiotherapy and midwifery. I am interested in how the health care and the medical knowledge regime unfold in practice, and what opportunities different clinical contexts provide for learning and professional development. I work on the basis of theories of learning as relational and context-dependent social processes. I like to work in close collaboration with practice partners within all parts of the healthcare system and the education sector. Currently, I am the leader of several research projects that thematize learning and competence development in clinical contexts both in relation to pre-graduate clinicians, but also with a focus on learning in working life after graduation.



My field of research is health professions, health education and the transformations of the health care system. Over the last 10 years, my research has focused on education of health professionals and how the changed conditions in the health care system shape the health professionals' understanding of their work and professional identity. I deploy a range of qualitative research approaches e.g ethnography and document analysis. I prefer to work in close collaboration with practice partners in all parts of the health care system. Since my book on interprofessional collaboration was published in 2016, I have given more than 30 lectures on why collaboration across professions, disciplines and sectors often prove challenging and how develop collaborative practices.
