About Daniel Ståhl
I am a social worker and registered healthcare counselor. I have a master's degree in social work. As a professional, I have my background in health care where I have met many people with various neurological diseases and various forms of impairment. A common reason for contact with these people has been difficulties they face in relation to society, what is usually described as disability. Based on those experiences, the interest in researching and countering disability has developed.
- Persons living with chronic disease
- Health social work and knowledge utilization
The forthcoming thesis is about disability experienced by persons living with multiple sclerosis (MS), which is one of the most common neurological diseases in Sweden. MS is a disease that can affect the person with a large number of different symptoms and impairment. The majority of persons that are diagnosed with MS are between 20-40 years old. The disease is chronic and currently there are only treatments that slow down the course of the disease. Thus, MS is a disease that exists in a varied part of the population.
The first two articles of the thesis are published with open access-license, which means that they are freely available to everyone. Links to the articles can be found under the Publications tab below.
