Associate Professor Pether Jildenstål at the Institute of Health and Care Sciences receives approximately SEK 1.4 million from the Innovation Fund for the development of communication between healthcare providers and recipients of anesthesia and surgery. The communication path that Pether develops should increase patient safety prior to surgery and anesthesia, and also in the case of the complex aftercare, since problems with, among other things, nausea, fatigue and pain are common. The communication path is based on a person-centered approach, and enables reporting on an individual level about how people actually recover. The communication path is integrated into an existing system, and means that encrypted patient data can be transmitted safely between healthcare professionals and patients.

The Miller Award is awarded every three years by the Swedish Dentist Society, and highlights researchers behind the best scientific papers in the last six years. Among the former recipients are among others the Sahlgrenska Academy’s Anders Linde and Tord Berglundh
