Astrid Torbjørnsen


I am a registered nurse from Lovisenberg Diaconal University College, and master's in health sciences from the University of Oslo. My doctoral work is from the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Oslo, on health technology, with a diseration from 2020.

I adminster several courses in the Bachelor of Nursing, including research methods, evidence-based practice and the bachelor's thesis. I am active in internationalisation in education, including through COIL - collaborative online international learning.

My research interests concern health technology and patient-reported outcome measures and how these affect interactions in a clinical environments.

Overall, I combine my interests in teaching and research, through technology as a focus both places.

In research collaboration with Akershus University Hospital, I am the PI of the User-centred outpatient clinic project, and I act as a deputy manager of the Quality of Life research group at OsloMet.
