Pirjo Lindfors, DSocSc

Tampere School of Public Health
Utacas fellow 2008-2009

My research interests during my Utacas-fellowship year relate to the themes of children's, adolescents' and families' wellbeing. I work in a multidisciplinary research project "Preventive work in maternity and child health care: changing client relationships, teamwork and family-centred model". A new family-centred model combining maternity and child health care clinics has recently been developed and implemented in various clinics in Tampere region. The research focuses on the practices the public health nurses use when implementing the principles of preventive work. I am particularly interested in how the lifestyle issues of the family members, like alcohol use, are discussed and how parenthood is supported. In addition, I investigate the hopes and fears about the future among Finnish adolescents (age 12-18) in 1983-2007.
