Course leader Lotta Dellve is a professor of work science which is a multidisciplinary field of studies. She holds a MSc in public health, a PhD and associate professorship in occupational medicine, a professorship in caring science/leadership and organizing health care as well as a professorship in ergonomics. Her main areas of research have focused on work-related health in relation to work environment conditions (in particular psycho-social, but also physical and organizational conditions), leadership and work organization. She is curious of different perspectives of the themes in her research work. Therefore she is also actively involved in some research networks focusing on these issues of working life, for example NOVO Nordic network and FALF.
To better meet contemporary and future working-life challenges, it is important to have a broader understanding of the complex nature of work and of the multi-component conditions that have impact on occupational health, says Dellve. Thus, multidisciplinary perspectives and competences to collaborate in multidisciplinary teams is becoming more and more important for researchers, leaders and officials.
