Patient-reported Outcomes and Patient Safety in acute and/or critical illness (POPS)
The research group POPS has as its main purpose to gain new knowledge to improve the quality of nursing care in the acute and/or critically ill patients, more specific to intensive care patients, and patients pre-, per- and post-surgery.
Quality is in this context meaning better patient and next of kin experiences and better patient safety through caring and safe health services. The research projects includes topics related to the acute and/or critically ill patients of all ages having preventive-, curative- , palliative-, promotional- and rehabilitative needs for nursing care.
The research group POPS is associated to the Master program in Anesthesia Nursing, Operation Theatre Nursing and Critical Care Nursing, and is an arena where Master- and PHD Candidates can discuss their master projects with group members, and with our external and international collaborators.
