Introduction
Assistant professor at the division of occupational therapy, NVS, Karolinska Institutet. Previously Reg. Occupational Therapist at Spinalis SCI unit. Research focus is on sick leave and RTW after sickness or injury. My thesis aimed to generate knowledge about RTW for adults with SCI to develop and evaluate the feasibility of ReWork-SCI. My current focus is the coordination of RTW and the intersection between work and private life for sick leave and RTW for persons with CMDs.

Thesis
Full-text available
Introduction: Return to work (RTW) after spinal cord injury (SCI) often involves a complex and extended process for the person, due to consequences of the injury. There is limited evidence on how to support a person with SCI during the RTW process, and employment rates are low in Sweden, as well as internationally. It is important when developing a...
Article
Involving persons with spinal cord injury (SCI) as experts in their lives is important for research to design relevant health care interventions. The purpose of this study was to use photovoice methods to explore experiences of barriers and possibilities in return to work among working adults with SCI. The photovoice group consisted of six persons...

Project
To translate the Spinal Cord Independence Measure III and SR into Swedish. The translation of SCIM-SR and SCIM-III in Swedish was performed as part of the research project the International Project for the Evaluation of activE Rehabilitation (Inter-PEER) (https://www.researchgate.net/project/INTERnational-Project-for-the-Evaluation-of-activE-Rehabilitation-inter-PEER-for-people-with-spinal-cord-injury-SCI). The translation process was based on guidelines and recommendations, and involved a multidisciplinary team of health professionals with expertise in SCI rehabilitation, a professional translator and people with spinal cord injury. The SCIM is an assessment tool for independence in daily activities relevant for people with spinal cord injury. The items are graded and weighted to capture the difficulty of performance, the subjective value of the activities and the time required. The SCIM III comprises 19 daily activities divided into the following subscales: Self-care, Respiration and sphincter management and Mobility (room and toilet and indoors/outdoors on even surface). If you wish to provide comments in regard to the translation of s-SCIM-III and s-SCIM-SR, please send us a message on ResearchGate (https://www.researchgate.net/project/s-SCIM-III-and-s-SCIM-SR-Swedish-version-of-Spinal-Cord-Independence-Measure-III-and-SR). We will consider your comments, and we may respond back if we need further clarifications.
Project
First years after SCI is crucial for a return to work, early and coordinated rehabilitation are necessary to facilitate participation in the labor market for persons with SCI. The overall aim of this project is to generate knowledge about RTW for adults with SCI, in order to develop and evaluate innovative interventions that can serve as a compliment to current systems for returning to work. The thesis is based on a participatory approach, i.e. an approach where the participant is seen as collators in research. In cooperation with persons with SCI and actors in RTW, knowledge will be generated to serve as a foundation in development of a complex intervention.
