Research

My main field of interest is vertigo, dizziness and balance. My research has focused on vestibular rehabilitation as treatment for different diagnosis for dizziness, as well as balance and function among elderly patients with dizziness. Since I work in primary health care, I also focus on research in that area.

Patient education for patients with osteoarthritis is one example as well as physical activity on prescription and rehabilitation for patients with stroke. Another field of interest is research in higher education, were I currently is responsible for at project concerning reliability of scoring rubric for assessment of scientific writing in a medical student program. Other ongoing projects are research about vestibular function among elderly patients with fall-related wrist fractures, vestibular function among elderly patients with multisensory dizziness and dizziness among patients with stroke. My main fellow researchers are Margareta Troein and Anders Beckman within general practice, Leif Dahlberg within orthopedic and Måns Magnusson within Ear-Nose and Throat.
