Personal profile

Research interests

Postdoc at NSR Hospital and Institute for Regional Health research at SDU with an academic interest in wellbeing outcomes of meaningful movement situated in the paradigm of rehabilitative palliative care.

Following my Phd degree in 2021 with the title "Integrating general palliative care in a heart failure clinic – based on patients narratives" I am currently building research experiences and results within the field of rehabilitative palliative care.

Rehabilitative palliative care integrates rehabilitation, enablement, self-management and self-care into the holistic model of palliative care with aims of physical, psychosocial and existential wellbeing.

Within this paradigm I investigate an evolving concept of meaningful movement with the aim of developing practice to better suit the needs of people with chronic and life-threatening illness.

I primarily work within a hermeneutic phenomenological frame using qualitative methods, because to develop practice in a meaningful way we need to incorporate perspectives from lived life with illness. In addition, I use review methods to situate my work in current knowledge.
