Background

Ida has a PhD from the University of Oslo from 2016 with the following title:” Illness perceptions and individualized quality of life in patients with low back pain”. In the last 10 years, Ida has mainly been working with research on patients with musculoskeletal disorder, including clinical trials, both in primary and secondary health services. Psychological challenges such as anxiety, depression and illness perception, beliefs and coping has been primary area of ​interest.

Research Project

Using Motivational Interviewing (MI) in the dialogue with sick-listed people has become a popular strategy in NAV offices in Norway despite that there is limited evidence for the effect of MI on return to work outcomes. 

The project consists of 3 work packages (WP) were the main objective of the overall project is to compare the effects of MI, either provided alone by NAV employees, or combined with Stratified Primary Care, provided by GPs or physiotherapists in primary health care, with usual NAV practice on return to work among people sick-listed due to a musculoskeletal disorder.

This specific post doc project is related to WP1 and will evaluate the current practice of NAV in dealing with sick-listed people due to a musculoskeletal disorder, as well as the current evidence for using MI to facilitate return to work in musculoskeletal disorders.

Research interests

  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Illness perceptions and coping with illness
  • Quality of life
  • Return to work
  • Occupational health
  • Patient reported outcomes
