I work as Professor of nursing science (acting) in the Department of Nursing Science at the University of Turku and Satakunta Wellbeing Services County.


My teaching areas are research methodology including instrument development, different literature reviews, academic writing and nursing interventions.


My research focus on health from functional perspective. I am interested to evaluate patients’ functional health, quality of care and rehabilitation in different levels of health care, patients' own strategies to care for and promote their own functional health and to evaluate the competence of health care professionals to provide care and rehabilitation. Strong basis for research lies in foot healh research in different ages groups and contexts.

My PhD study (2013) focused on foot health in older people and I developed the Foot Health Assessment Instrument to be used in clinical nursing care. My post doc study concentrated on occupational health care, namely in foot health in nurses. My current research deals with functional health and rehabilitation in patients with long-term conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis.
