Petra Suonnansalo

I belong to the Adherence research group, which conducts multidisciplinary and international research on the effect of various interventions on treatment adherence. I work as a research assistant in the Sote-digiohjaaja project (ESR), the goal of which is to develop and pilot an education model that supports the digital guidance skills of social and health care professionals in the welfare region of Northern Ostrobothnia. In my Pro Gradu thesis, I research the experiences of customers who use digital services about the digital guidance skills of healthcare professionals.

My research interests include the themes of digital health care, the development of health care professionals' skills, wellbeing and health differences between the sexes and comprehensive (physical, psychological, spiritual and social) wellbeing of people.

Research interests

  • Digital counselling competence
  • Digital health care
  • Health promotion
