My current research is about primary health services and specifically physiotherapy practice in a rural context. Due to recent reorganizations of the Norwegian health care, physiotherapists’ traditional practice need to be changed – if we want to keep our position in the public health care. To investigate into traditions of physiotherapy practice and how the profession is responding to changes within the healthcare system, we need theories that contextualize practice and shed light on what are the important issues and new ways of understanding the issues. At the moment I am taking part in developing one of our multi-professional master programs in health sciences to get extended focus on skills needed to meet the tasks in the primary health care. In this regard, the CPN is a source of inspiration!
In my Ph.D. work, I studied the relationship between the body and the tool; the tools represent the use of different technologies (traditional handcraft, assembly work and ICT work). I made use of social perspectives on the context of movement. An important contribution from the study is how the development of society changes the body and our perception of ourselves and surroundings.
My theoretical interests range from the phenomenology of the body to social constructivist perspectives on action, theories of knowledge and professional practice. My research methodological skills lie within the field of qualitative methods.
To read about the members’ views and perspectives on issues I have not been thinking about is challenging and enriching. I get a feeling of belonging to a profession in progress. I addition, I would like to increase international collaboration, especially in research and get collaborators through the network.
