Biography

I am a registered nurse, with specialization in
surgical-intensive nursing, in my basic education. I am master in educational
sciences (MEd), and PhD in health sciences (nursing science).  Since 1998,
I have been a full professor in nursing science and since 2002, I am the Head
of the Department of Nursing Science in the Faculty of Medicine. I also have
many other scientific duties, both in my university, nationally and
internationally.




Since 2002, I have had a subsidiary position of Nurse
Director at the Turku University Hospital (Hospital District of Southwest
Finland).  This position allows me a close connection with nurses in
practice and I belong to many groups developing research activities in
University Hospital.


PhD-education is an important part of my work:  I
am the Head of the Doctoral Programme in Nursing Science (DPNurs) in our
University, and I participate in the national doctoral network
in nursing science, including collaboration between all five universities in
Finland responsible for PhD-education in nursing science.  Since many
years, I have participated in the PhD-teaching of European Academy of Nursing
Science EANS. We also have PhD summer schools in Baltic Sea Region
Network in Personalized Health Care and more globally (ICoNS),
which I am contributing.



I am a visiting professor (2016-2018) in the University of Dublin, Trinity
College and have many international expertise duties. I am honorary doctor in the University of
Klaipeda, Lithuania.







Research




My research fields are concentrated in following
topics, I have published more than 400 scientific publications, have
international and multidisciplinary collaboration and have been involved in
many EU-funded consortiums:

• Value basis and ethics in health care and
nursing. In this field, I have a special interest in clinical empirical ethics,
including ethics of administration and health care organisations.  I have collaboration with professor Riitta
Suhonen in the area of individualized care and currently I am a member of COST
RANCARE network, coordinated by Dr Evridiki Papastavrou, Cyprus University of
Technology.

• Empowering patient education. In this field, I
have special interest in clinical fields, like orthopedic nursing and care of
cancer patients. I have developed and used in collaboration with the research
team instruments and programmes for patient education, also in international collaboration. In this, I have
collaboration with professor Sanna Salanterä.

• Competence of nurses and nursing students. In
this field, I have a special interest in the evaluation and measurement of
competence, and I have been involved in the development of competence
instruments in collaboration with other researchers. I have collaboration with
docent Riitta Meretoja in the development and use of Nurse Competence Scale.

• Outcomes of nursing and health care education. In
this field, I have special interest in evaluation of learning outcomes of
nursing and health care education, as well as work of teachers. I have
collaboration with docent Mikko Saarikoski in the development and of Clinical
Learning Environment Scale (CLES).

• Currently, based on funding from the Academy of
Finland, I am a PI in a new international research project in the competence of
nurses (PROCOMPnurse). I am also collaborating in the Erasmus+ program Nurse Leadership, for developing PhD and post doc education (PI Professor Thora Halfsteindottir, University of Iceland). 









Teaching



I am teaching both on masters and PhD-level in my
university.  On masters level, I am
responsible for the teaching of philosophy of nursing and health care. On the
PhD-level, I am teaching philosophy of science, different ethical courses, as
well as courses in nursing education and research methods.



I have supervised about 60 graduated PhDs and
currently I have several  PhD-students
under my supervision, mostly in collaboration with scientists from other
disciplines.
