Martin Salzmann-Erikson is developing and actively researching within the research program "Digital Shapeshifting". This program is one of three programs within the strategic research area of Health-Promoting Work.

Digital Shapeshifting aims to address the following societal challenges:

  • Reducing digital exclusion when digital technology is integrated into healthcare in a way that strengthens empathetic and trustworthy relationships.
  • Ensuring a safe and inclusive digital care environment where quality and nursing science perspectives are not compromised.
  • Guaranteeing equal access and promoting digital competence.

Martin Salzmann-Erikson has extensive experience in clinical work within acute and intensive psychiatric care as a specialist nurse. He has also researched organizational and social working environments within psychiatric care and has developed a work model for staff within psychiatric intensive care. He is also involved in education at basic, advanced, and research levels within nursing and health sciences. He has developed courses such as "Integrative Nursing in Psychiatric Care 7.5 credits" and "Concept Analysis 7.5 credits" at an advanced level. What unites both his research and pedagogy is the complexity of human interaction - from chaos and complexity theories.
