Kort om

I mitt PhD prosjekt undersøkes hvordan et fallforebyggende treningsprogram påvirker helserelatert livskvalitet, redselen for å falle og fysiske mål. Programmet gjennomføres blant eldre med kommunale hjemmetjenester som har opplevd fall. Seks kommuner i Akershus deltar i prosjektet og over 150 eldre har blitt inkludert fra disse kommunene.

Før jeg ble stipendiat i 2015, har jeg jobbet flere år som fysioterapeut og leder for et tverrfaglig innsatsteam i kommunehelsetjenesten. I 2011-13 tok jeg en mastergrad i Neurological Rehabilitation ved University of Plymouth, UK.
