Professor in Community Nursing, Uppsala University, Sweden
Katarina Hjelm, is a professor in Caring Science at Department of Public Health and Caring Science at Uppsala University, Sweden. She is a diabetes specialist nurse and nurse tutor with a PhD in Community Medicine. Her main research areas are: Migration and health, Chronic Disease Management (diabetes, leg ulcers, COPD, Stroke, IBD) and International Health. Influence of migration on health were studied in the dissertation. Studies on beliefs about health/illness and influence on health related behaviour in migrants of different origin with different types/severity of diabetes, particularly gestational diabetes, have followed. As a scientific leader projects have been run on e.g chronic disease management, health development, care of migrants in psychiatry and emergency care, elderly migrants, and communication in health care. International studies on chronic disease management have been made in UK, Zimbabwe, Uganda, China, and Oman. Big public health problems are investigated and focus on “Health” being a key concept in Nursing. Development of an optimal health care organisation with best possible care aimed at promoting health in the individual, irrespective of cultural background, is the least common denominator for the projects.
She has a vast experience of working with both qualitative and quantitative research methods for collecting and analysing data, particularly in migrants of different origin, as well as teaching in Nursing on all levels from postgraduate to PhD-level.
