Anita Björklund Carlstedts forskningsintresse handlar i huvudsak om äldre personers och funktionshindrade personers delaktighet i samhällslivet. Av särskilt intresse är studier som handlar om hur ett förlängt och lustfyllt arbetsliv kan möjliggöras för personer som uppnått pensionsålder, så kallad ”bridge employment”. Bridge employment kan förekomma med tre inriktningar; arbeta kvar för samma arbetsgivare som tidigare (s.k. ”career employment”), arbeta för en ny arbetsgivare eller som egen företagare. För närvarande studeras grupper av personer som valt att arbeta för en ny arbetsgivare, med bemanningsföretaget Veteranpoolen AB som exempel. Narrativa intervjuer kommer också att genomföras med äldre personer som är aktiva som egna företagare, om arbetets betydelse ur ett dåtids-, nutids-, och framtidsperspektiv. Ett annat forskningsintresse är paradigmutveckling genom utbildning och praxis hos arbetsterapeutstudenter och arbetsterapeuter samt hur begreppet ´hälsa´ kommer till uttryck i arbetsterapeuternas yrkesutövning. Anita Björklund Carlstedt är ansvarig för forskningsmiljön A.D.U.L.T. (Activity, Daily life, Utility, Lifestyle, Transition) som forskar kring personer i yrkesverksam ålder oberoende av kronologisk ålder. Sedan 2013 är hon Chefredaktör för Scandinavian Journal of Occupational Therapy, Taylor & Francis förlag, som för 2019 uppnått Impact Factor 1.347. Som chefredaktör samverkar hon med de nationella redaktörerna från Danmark, Norge, Finland, Island och Sverige.
