About Rebecca Ahlstrand

Rebecka is an affiliated researcher at the School of Medical Sciences within the subject area of general surgery at Örebro University.

Research

Rebecka obtained her PhD within the subject of trauma and emergency surgery in 2019 with the thesis title "The Association Between Beta-Blockade and Clinical Outcomes in the Context of Surgical and Traumatic Stress". Rebecka is now a co-supervisor to three PhD students whose research continues to explore the relationship between beta-blocker therapy and surgery. Ongoing research is focusing on how the care of surgical patients can be optimised in order to improve clinical outcomes.
