BRIEF OVERVIEW AND RESEARCH FOCUS

I am an Associate Professor in Health Sciences based at SHARE - Centre for Resilience in Healthcare (https://www.uis.no/share) and the Department of Quality and Health Technology, in the Faculty of Health Sciences, at the University of Stavanger. 

In my current research, I focus primarily on adolescent/youth mental healthcare. I run the InvolveMENT research project which aims to support adolescents' mental health and to contribute to strengthen the access to and the quality of healthcare services for adolescents who have mental health problems and conditions (https://www.uis.no/en/involvement). InvolveMENT focuses on involvement within the healthcare services, at both the individual and systems level, and in research. Ten Co-Researches have been involved in the project over the past four years. Our current plan includes development and testing of eHealth services to support youth mental health.

I am also involved in homcare services research, with a focus on service design/co-design of services and assessment tools to support patient safety culture.

I did my PhD at the University of Sheffield (UK), Faculty of Medicine, Dentistry and Health. As part of my PhD studies, I carried out a randomised controlled trial and qualitative interview study with patients reporting symptoms of depression. The project used the Trials within Cohorts (TwiCs) design, also referred to as the cohort multiple randomised controlled trial (cmRCT) design. Participants were recruited through the Yorkshire Health Study, an NIHR funded long-term health study. I am Norwegian contact person for the International Trials within Cohorts (TwiCs) network (www.twics.global). 

Furthermore, I am an Associate Professor II in Health Sciences at VID Specialized University (20% position). I am involved in the INVOLVERT project at the Regional Centre for Child and Youth Mental Health and Welfare (RKBU North), UiT The Arctic University of Norway (initially Steering Committee Member, now Reference Group Member).

In the past, I have worked as a Research Consultant for the MRC funded Nourishing Start for Health (NOSH) breastfeeding research project in the UK. I have also worked as a Research Consultant for Norway's National Research Center in Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NAFKAM), and served as Coordinator for the CAM-Cancer Consortium. I ran a private practice in the field of complementary therapies for several years and I have served as Administering Director of the Social Pedagogy School for Higher Education in Sandnes, Norway. 

I hold a Master of Science Degree from the University of Central Lancashire (UK), Nursing and Caring Sciences Department. My Bachelor of Arts (pedagogy) is from the University of Oslo, Faculty of Educational Sciences.
