I am a trained specialist nurse in ambulance care and have clinical experience of emergency care, ambulance care and military care. Since 2008 I have been working in ambulance care in Region Sörmland and since 2019 I am a doctoral student in caring science at the Department of Health and Care Sciences. The doctoral studies are carried out at 50% and the remaining 50% I work as a specialist nurse in the ambulance serice in Region Sörmland.
I am the main instructor in the ambulance service in Region Sörmland region regarding suicide prevention. This includes responsibility for training employees in mental illness, suicidality and conversational techniques.
My research field is primarily ambulance care and mental illness. The thesis that I am currently working on focuses on the encounter between ambulance care and patients in suicidal process.
