About Lis Sjöberg

Lis Sjöberg has been a lecturer in occupational therapy since 2012. She has a PhD in Medical Science, specialization in Health Care Sciences and a Master's degree in Occupational Therapy from Örebro University. Since September 2021, Lis has the contract as Head of the Unit for Activity and Health at the Department of Health Sciences, which she combines with being a researcher in the research environment Research Enabling an Active Life (REAL) and the research group Treatment of limb deficiencies or amputation (TUMA).


The title of Lis' thesis is Healthcare interventions in children with congenital limb reduction deficiency: long term outcomes and experiences of decisions made during childhood, including four research projects carried out in collaboration with the Limb Deficiency and Arm Prosthesis Centre at the University Hospital, Örebro (USÖ) and the Swedish Association for children with Limb Deficiencies and their families.

Lis research topic deals with children with congenital limb reduction deficiencies (CLRD), interventions, experiences, and outcomes, from a patient and family perspective. The research questions are taken from clinical experiences. Currently, Lis participates in a project where the Prosthetic Upper Limb Functional Index (PUFI), an updated form for mapping the activity ability of children who use an arm prosthesis, will be translated, and validated for use in Sweden. The new PUFI will support the planning of habilitation efforts based on the child's own priorities. Lis is also working on a study about the role of parents in treatment decisions for children with CLRD that concerns parents' experiences of available information, knowledge, and support. 


Within the previous assignment as programme coordinator of the Occupational Therapy Program, Lis has worked with development of content and pedagogical methods in the program. In addition, she has had several assignments as course coordinator and teacher within the program. The teaching Lis gives is mainly about occupational therapy for children and young people, and professional development. She is also a supervisor and seminar leader for degree projects in occupational therapy at undergraduate and advanced level.

In her current assignment as head of unit, Lis works for the development of research-based pedagogical methods and a student-active learning environment.
