Gender aspects in telenursing
Post doc project
The Swedish Research Council (Vetenskapsrådet)
This project will use theories on gender and intersectionality to investigate the role of factors such as gender, age 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 that can measure gender competence in health care practice in general and telenursing in particular.
- Test an educational intervention for telenurses, with focus on gender, age and intersectionality.
This research is a collaboration with Mälardalens Högskola (Professor Inger Knutsson Holmström); and with Health Services Research (Senior Researcher Elenor Kaminsky); Caring Sciences (Professor Marianne Carlsson) and CRB (Associate Professor Anna T. Höglund) at the Department of Public Health and Caring Sciences.
