Caring and nursing science


Caring and nursing science is science that deals with the entire human life cycle - from birth to death. The research focuses on the patients, and their families, needs and abilities, on the health and environmental conditions and on organizational circumstances and care efforts.

The research results will help to renew and improve health care in Sweden and abroad regardless caregivers. Knowledge of caring also aims to provide a deeper understanding of the motives and contexts of meaning. Caring and nursing science focuses on concepts such as the human being, health, the caring relation and the caring environment.
