PhD in Occupational Therapy


Sofi Fristedt is mainly interested in the everyday travel opportunities (community mobility) of men and women, especially in later life. Community mobility is an important activity that enables participation in other activities and social life, which in turn is assumed to promote health and wellness.

Community mobility was also the focus of her dissertation. She studied older people’s desired and actual travel opportunities as well as subjective perspectives on community mobility and participation. Finally, factors associated with community mobility at a certain time and associated with changes over 13-year period were identified.

Sofi is also interested in improvement work including implementation of evidence-based practice (EBP) and evaluation. As part of this interest, she has been involved in the translation into Swedish of evaluation instruments AusTOMs for occupational therapists.

The key words in her research are: community mobility (everyday travel opportunities), participation in activity, health and wellness, EBP and evaluation.
