About me/my research:

My main research interests are implementation of research findings into clinical practice and assessment of pain, more specifically the validity and validation practices of assessment measures. My PhD-project concerns validation of translated observational pain assessment measures for use in preverbal children and will utilize a combination of qualitative and quantitative approaches
