More about the research group
1. Learning and Interaction in Education
We examine learning processes related to nursing students’ practical and theoretical education. One project focuses on the assessment of bachelor and master students’ competencies during their clinical studies, whilst another looks at learning activities and academic performance in anatomy, physiology and biochemistry (AFB) within nursing education. We also investigate learning outcomes from the interdisciplinary emergency medicine simulation, involving BA students and medical students (Student BEST).
2. Cooperation Between Healthcare Professionals and Patients
The group participates in a number of projects that deal with cooperation between healthcare professionals and patients in various rehabilitation units; one example being how health professionals in interprofessional collaborations relate to patients with persistent pain. The group is affiliated to the research network Phlegethon, and is included in the research project Transitions in Rehabilitation, which examines patient participation and interprofessional use of knowledge in rehabilitation processes.
3. Health Counselling and Pedagogical Competencies
Mapping the characteristics of pedagogical skills required by nurses is an on-going study. The research group will be participating in further development and evaluation of education programs for health professionals at the Oslo University Hospital (OUS), in relation to patient education.
