Om mig

I work as Associate Professor in Education with a focus on Health care education. I hold a Docentship in Adult Education at the University of Helsinki, Finland.

Research

My research interests are transcultural education and professional/vocational education and training in the area of health care. My studies cover simulation-mediated learning in health care, inter-professional challenges and co-operation as well as intercultural learning and migrant education. Themes concerning equality and equity in education and working life have guided my research work.  

Teaching

I teach future vocational health care teachers on undergraduate level, future pedagogical experts on advanced level and future researchers on doctoral level. Here are some examples of the courses that I have taught at the Stockholm University:

Bedömning och betygsättning av yrkeskunnande [Assessment and grading of vocational knowledge] (7,5 ECTS)

Metod, design och analys [Method, design and analysis] (7,5 ECTS)

Hypothesis, action and design (7,5 ECTS)

Cultural-historical activity theory and developmental work research – Uses in research and in working life (7,5 ECTS)

I have also supervised students’ Thesis on Bachelor, Master and Doctoral level. I have been supervisor of three doctoral students, who have already defended and I am currently supervisor of six doctoral students.

Projects at the Stockholm University

2020-2022 I am Principal Investigator of the project called Integration and inclusion of migrants in and through vocation and work. You can read more about the project here:  https://www.swecris.se/betasearch/details/project/201900832Forte?lang=en (in English)

https://www.swecris.se/betasearch/details/project/201900832Forte (in Swedish)

 

2018-2019 I initiated a project focusing on 21st century skills, which are often referred to when talking about future competences in society and in working life. We have collected data though e-survey among vocational teacher students at the Stockholm University. This project is co-operation between our University and University of Helsinki.  

 

2017- 2019 I created a Nordic Network for Migration and Vocational Education and Training with my colleague Ali Osman to reflect on and share common challenges in the area on migration and vocational education. The network has eight partners from four Nordic countries.

    Aim

    To describe Finnish nurse leaders’ perceptions of and experiences with knowledge management.

    Background

    Health science research has traditionally focused on knowledge transfer and research evidence instead of knowledge management, culture and organisational learning. Systematic reviews indicate a lack of awareness about nurse leaders’ activities in knowledge management.

    Design

    Qualitative interview study according to the consolidated criteria for reporting qualitative research (see Supporting Information Table S1).

    Methods

    Data were collected at a Finnish public, social and healthcare organisation from 33 persons in 2015 and 2017 through 35 individual interviews and seven focus groups. Data were analysed by thematic analysis.

    Results

    Nurse leaders’ daily knowledge management activities included assurance of smooth work functions and decisions about sudden changes. When managing knowledge promotion, nurse leaders focused on the near future and served information providers, coaches and developers of operating culture. Anticipatory management of knowledge requirements emphasised nurse leaders’ roles as assessors and visionaries. Tensions while managing knowledge were related to the following: changes in clients’ service needs, insufficient structures and tools to support the assessment and joint development of competence, time and information management, the operating culture, and nurse leader support. Participants reported only few attempts to solve tensions and therefore little to no transformative agency.

    Conclusion

    Nurse leaders prioritised daily knowledge management over management of knowledge promotion and anticipatory management of knowledge requirements. Knowledge management in nursing is a complex task requiring a command of different kinds of agency and related leadership styles. The structures, processes and tools supporting knowledge management should be developed to ensure that activities are systematic.

    Relevance to clinical practice

    A description of nurse leaders’ perceptions of and experiences with knowledge management could improve recognition of nurse leaders’ agencies for knowledge management, identification of related tensions and application of lessons learned from tensions. This description could also promote nurses’ professional competence and supplement nurse leaders’ training.
