About Elisabeth Ericsson

Elisabeth Ericsson is registered nurse (1981 with graduate diploma in specialist nursing anaesthesia care, RNA and intensive care nurse (1988), Master in Nursing science; MScN (2004) Doctor in Medical science PhD (2007) and is Associate Professor in anesthesia care (2013). Elisabeth Ericsson works as Head of School of Health and Medical Sciences since 2014, Örebro University.

 

The focus of Elisabeth Ericsson´s (EE) research is her interest of the pre-operative preparation and post-operative support for patients (children and adults) undergoing anesthesia, surgery and medical procedures to minimize the negative emotional reaction, to achieve optimal pain and distress control in patients and improving the quality of care.

She has a long experience as a clinical nurse and as a nurse anaesthetist. It was in this role position of head nurse for surgery and anaesthesia in the ENT- clinic she began her research for her thesis. In 2007 she gave her viva voce on her thesis and has her doctorate in medicine. The thesis title was “Health and well-being of children and young adults in relation to surgery of the tonsils". Tonsil surgery is the most common paediatric surgical procedures performed each worldwide. The aim of the thesis was to improve the care given to these children and young adults, and to describe tonsillotomy (removal of the majority of the tonsillar tissue) [TT] in comparison with the more commonly tonsillectomy (removing all of the tonsil) [TE]. Children with tonsillar hypertrophy resulting in upper airway obstruction, sleep-disordered breathing with or without recurrent tonsillitis have a negative impact on behaviour, and health-related quality of life [HRQL]. Both TE and TT yielded large improvements in HRQL, infections, obstructive, behaviour problems after surgery, indicating that both surgical methods are equally effective. TT is a safe method with less pain, shorter recovery time, larger cost reduction etc than regular TE.

The research –group in this area (tonsil-surgery) has been nationally leading and the publications and participation in international meetings have influenced to change to the method tonsillotomi for tonsil hypertrophy causing upper airway obstruction in children. EE is one of the group members to the National expert group for tonsil surgery and the team for the National quality register ENT-healthcare. The group has produced national guidelines for tonsil surgery in Sweden (2009), national guidelines for tonsillotomy (2011) and national guidelines for the treatment of pain in tonsil surgery (2013). A national web-based information to patients (adults and children) and next-of-kin has been developed (www.tonsilloperation.se) to improve the care. A new feature 2013 is on pharmacological treatment and possibility to calculate the correct dose of non-prescription drugs for next-of-kin, based on online guidelines.

The research group continue to evaluate tonsil surgery national-wide. Scientific work research questions from National tonsil surgery register are about pain-management, postoperative bleeding, other complications, postoperative recovery. Other collaborative research groups are research about to assess and follow up children’s self-reported postoperative recovery after tonsil operation both in clinical praxis as well in research.

EE is a part of a research group where the aim of the project is to minimize the anxiety for the child in connection with surgery. Children develop behavioural stress and anxiety before surgery and this seems to be a factor for later behavioural problems example of studies in this project are; to develop and validate instruments to assess and evaluate childréns anxiety and behavior during the preoperative period and to exploare certified registered Nurse Anesthetists strategies in the encounter with the anxious children and to evaluate educational interventions intended for anesthetists and parents to enhance the alliance between anesthetists and the child in relation to anesthesia induction.

EE is also a part of research groups’ concern interventions to reduce pain, anxiety and distress during the course of medical procedures. One project is to evaluate interventions to minimizing negative experience and making the examinations as pleasant and as possible during Magnetic Resonance Imaging.
