Background and activities

Works as a PhD student in the project "Healing and justice - health care and legal flow after rape": Hospital staff will provide emergency health care in addition to assisting the police in forensic sampling and documentation of injuries. The overall aim of the study is to increase knowledge about sexual assault of adult women, improve health care and judicial efforts in this area.

Data sources for the study are police files from the Sør-Trøndelag Police District 1997-2010, as well as records from the Sexual Assault Centre at St. Olav's Hospital for the same time period. Two studies have been published so far.

Supervisor is prosfessor Berit Schei.

The project has received funding from the The Norwegian ExtraFoundation for Health and Rehabilitation through the NGO Norwegian Women's Public Health Association, as well as from The Liaison Committee between the Central Norway Regional Health Authority and the Norwegian University of Science and Technology.
