About Qarin Lood

I am associated professor in occupational therapy, employed as a senior lecturer at the occupational therapy program at the Sahlgrenska Academy and I work with both teaching and research. As an occupational therapist, my expertise is broad, with experience of work with children, adults and older persons. When I teach, it mainly concerns supervision, person-centredness in occupational therapy and the scientific process. As a researcher, my focus lies on how a person-centred approach and way of working could be applied on clinical work and research. For instance, research projects I am involved in concern how to make frail older persons' voices heard, so that they can be involved and influence both services and research that is available to them. My work is mainly in multidisciplinary contexts, and I strive to understand how a person-centred approach could be applied to different organisations and by different professions.
