Lady Fortune

I have absolutely no intention to be disrespectful and I fear that my English skills is my shortcoming. Despite of this, I feel an urge of sharing my thoughts and I will try to express myself carefully. It turns out, that in my research area there is a huge gap. I found peer-reviewed articles from the... Continue Reading →

Wait a minute…

Yesterday I thought a lot of patient experience vs patient satisfaction and I felt I was going in circles - round and round and round. Made me dizzy! Today, I come to think of it again... The thing is, I think I got it... Funny enough, it was my dysfunctional marriage (2017) that gave me... Continue Reading →

New dimensions

Still trying to adapt to my "new" life as a PhD student. The hardest part is to prioritize which "task of the day" I'm should lay hold of. There are so many of them... so how do I select them in a good, structured and effective way? I find myself doing list of what I'm... Continue Reading →

A siren call

The first course that I participate in, as a PhD student, is a course in psychometric, and it will last the whole semester. I have to travel approximately 1,5 hour to get there since it's located in another part of the county I live in. I wake up at five o'clock and try to go... Continue Reading →

They're possibly everywhere - all over the place. Emily... Continue Reading →

I have to concentrate hard to get it right. The last days I´ve been concentrating hard, really hard. My first deadline was today and in agreement with my supervisors I... Continue Reading →

At the interview (when I applied to become a PhD student) one associate professor asked me a question and it has haunt me ever since.   Also me: OMG, I don´t even understand the question! But I do have questions -... Continue Reading →

Six dimensions

According to the report "Crossing the quality chasm" from 2001, there are six dimensions of quality. These dimensions represent characteristics of how health care should be and what areas to focus on when improving it. Safe - make no harm Effective - evidence-based care Patient-centered - individual responsive and respectful care Timely - access and system responsiveness... Continue Reading →

From good to great

Oh dear, what have I done? Today´s lesson is nothing less than an understanding of the impossible thing I´m about to do. How on earth am I going to measure patient satisfaction during endoscopic procedures? My ambition is to achieve a standard for measuring patient satisfaction in the name of quality assurance and by that create... Continue Reading →
