Karin has a Master of Philosophy in Nursing, licenced nurse and district nurse.
The overall aim of the doctoral research project is to study the working situation of nursing staff and first-line managers in Swedish acute hospital settings, as well as their well-being and efficiency. The project is planned to include four data collections at medical and surgical units in both public and private hospitals. Data from a questionnaire, observations and interviews are collected for the first two studies. The other two studies are currently planned to be interview studies. The project is expected to contribute with in-depth knowledge of the structural conditions within Swedish emergency care that may be important for nursing staff and first-line managers' work, well-being and efficiency. These results could be used in the work of developing and improving the work situation and the quality of care in Swedish acute hospitals.
