I have worked as a teacher and researcher at a university since 2002, first at the University of Oulu (2002-2009), then at the University of Eastern Finland (2010-2018) and, since September 2018, at the University of Turku. I act as a research group leader and a member of national and international multidisciplinary research groups. In addition, I am a lecturer and expert in various scientific and societal groups and tasks.
Nursing and health care ethics, health promotion, qualitative research methods, systematic literature reviews and document analysis, scientific writing and supervision of Master’s theses and doctoral dissertations.
My study has been focused on nursing and health care ethics, including professional ethics, rights and regulations, collegiality, and patient and client rights, duties and responsibilities in health and health choices. I am also investigating the change of social and health care work and environmental responsibility in patient care.
