New doctoral student projects within PreHospen

This is a translation of an article from 2020-10-22

What is happening during the autumn within your centre?

This autumn, we will start up two new doctoral student projects. One will develop and test a medical record review instrument that will measure patient safety in ambulance care and the other will look at video communication in the ambulance.

What is the long-term vision of this centre?

The long-term vision is to build a strong research infrastructure within PreHospen. We want to do this through a pre-hospital simulation lab, by building up a database that collects PreHospen's research data, and by increasing the centre's basic funding.

What is the major societal challenge you are working on right now?

The big challenge is to investigate and test methods to improve the prehospital care that has played and will continue to play an increasingly important role in healthcare.

Are there any special projects underway that you would like to tell us about?

In addition to the above-mentioned projects, we have done tests and collected data on the use of the research ambulance, an ambulance owned by the ambulance service at Sahlgrenska, which is equipped with cameras and simulation equipment where the ambulance staff can test new equipment, new processes, and more.


There are five centres at the University of Borås. The purpose of these centres is to strengthen networks which aim to contribute to quality development of the university's education and research.
