Gender aspects in telenursing
The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet)
This project will use theories on gender and intersectionality to investigate the role of factors such as gender and ethnicity in Swedish telenursing. An instrument that can investigate gender competence in telenursing and evaluate the effect of an educational intervention with focus on gender competence for telenurses will also be developed.
This research will:
- Investigate gender differences in the communication and outcome of telenursing consultations (measured in GP appointments, self-care advice or referrals to other care providers) and explore these differences through the use of theories on gender and intersectionality.
- Develop a tool for analysis of gender competence including aspects of power and intersectionality.
- Test an educational intervention for telenurses, with focus on gender and intersectionality.
This research is a collaboration with co-supervisors from Health Services Reseearch (Associate Professor Inger Holmström) and Caring Sciences (Professor Marianne Carlsson) at the Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences. Main supervisor is Associate Professor Anna T. Höglund, CRB.
