Anne Oikarinen

I am holding a position of a University Lecturer in Nursing Science. My research interests focus on treatment adherence in patients with long-term or chronic conditions, and on patient education and health promotion in a digitalized health care environment, and on issues around them. The good quality of patient care is always the major focus. My long-term aim is to develop and establish evidence-based nursing in health care in order that nursing interventions will be effective, appropriate, feasible and meaningful.
