Overview

In nursing practice for chronic disease management in adults, we provide care for adolescent to middle-aged patients with chronic diseases. We aim to elucidate the influence of health and health impairments on the life style of patients based on developmental tasks in order to be able to support patients to live their lives by their own values.
Our main research interests include the development of technologies and practical nursing skills specifically for patients with chronic diseases such as respiratory disease, cardiovascular disease, Crohn’s disease, and cancer.
