Doctoral project: Self-care as a method to reduce the risk of wound recurrence
The aim of the project is to prevent recurrence of hard-to-heal ulcers, improve treatment processes and promote a person-centered and equal care. Our strategy is to develop a personal self-care plan in order to strengthen the staff and the patients' knowledge of wounds, treatment and self-care in hard-to-heal ulcers.

More about the project
Study 1 and 2 will be conducted with the life-worlds in focus. We want to describe the lived experiences of the time after healing (study 1) and of getting selfcare advises and information during treatment (study 2).
Study 3 will, through data from a national quality registry, focus on connections between sex, age, selfcare and treatment etc.
