Om Annica Kihlgren

Forskningsinriktning/aktuella projekt

Annica Kihlgren är legitimerad sjuksköterska och disputerade 2005 vid Karolinska Institutet med avhandlingen ”Older Patients in Transition- from Home Care towards Emergency Care”.

Fokus i pågående forskning ligger på äldres hälsa och livsvillkor utifrån den äldre personens egen subjektiva upplevelse, vårdpersonals samt ledares syn på sin arbetssituation och den vård som ges till äldre, med koppling till personcentrerad vård. Studierna belyser också organisatoriska aspekter samt användandet av patientbaserade IT-verktyg i den kliniska verksamheten. Stor vikt läggs vid att sprida och implementera ny kunskap inom äldreomsorgen där Annica har ett nära samarbete med de olika aktörerna.

Olika projekt drivs i ett nära samarbete med forskningsområdet NUPARC, ”The Örebro Nutrition and Physical Activity Research Centre for Optimal Health and Functionality through Life” och forskningsmiljön Nutrition Gut Brain Interaction, med fokus på maghälsans betydelse för äldre.

Annica har även ett nära samarbete med högskolan i Gävle, primärvården i Gävleborg och Karolinska Institutet där vårdkedjestudier och studier av funktionsförmåga och vårdbehov hos äldre personer pågår.

Ett nära samarbete finns också med högskolan i Halmstad, Buskeruds-Vestfolds Högskola i Drammen, Norge samt Escola d'Infermeria, Universitat Autònoma (UA), Barcelona, Spanien.

Annica ansvarar idag för uppbyggnaden av forskningsmiljön ”Äldres Hälsa och Livsvillkor” vid IHM. Metodologiskt har Annica kunskap inom framförallt kvalitativ forskning samt att planera, leda och genomföra större projekt.
