The aim of my research is to elucidate the meaning of the experience of younger people (55 years and younger) and their next of kin following a myocardial infarction. Knowledge of this nature is needed to understand what should be prioritised in the development of appropriate post-MI nursing interventions focusing younger people and their next of kin.  I am also interested in questions concerning registered nurses’ perceptions of caring in contemporary healthcare as well as in questions regarding patient safety and eHealth.
