Karin Josefsson

Senior Lecturer

I work as a senior lecturer and associated professor within the field of caring sciences where I focus on elderly care and home care foremost in municipal care.

I have worked at the University of Borås since 2015. Before that, I worked at Mälardalen University and Örebro University and studied Clinical Elderly Care at Karolinska University.

I participate in three projects: older persons with multimorbidity; informal caregivers to older persons with heart failure; and value-based quality improvement of healthcare.
