About Marie Holmefur

Marie Holmefur, PhD and registrered Occupational Therapist is Senior Lecturer at School of Health Sciences. Marie graduated with a PhD from Karolinska Institutet in 2009 and was appointed associate professor at Örebro University in 2016.

Maries research focuses on enhancing everyday life in persons with a long-standing disability. In her PhD thesis Marie studied hand function in children with cerebral palsy (CP). Since 2003, Marie has been working on further development and evaluation of the Assisting Hand Assessment (AHA) which aims to measure and describe how effectively children with a unilateral disability use their affected hand in bimanual tasks. Further studies on both the AHA and development of hand function in children with unilateral CP are ongoing in collaboration with researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Stockholm. Marie also has a strong interest in instrument development and psychometric testing and she has used both modern (Rasch analysis) and classic test theory in her studies.

In recent years Marie has developed an interest in cognitive rehabilitation. How poor time management skills affects daily life and how time management skills can be enhanced is studied in the TOVA-project (Time management and structure in daily life).

Teaching

Marie teaches on basic and advanced level and also on postgraduate level in areas regarding research methodology with focus on quantitative studies, psychometrics and evidence-based practice. Marie is also course leader in all three levels.  

Assignments

Marie is supervising three PhD-students and she regularly serves as a reviewer for scientific journals in her field. Since 2011 Marie is on the advisory board for teaching and research for the Swedish Association of Occupational Therapists.
