Abstract

The call for the establishment of an endowed chair in innovative care was motivated by a need to address a multitude of challenges, including the aging population with increasing chronic diseases and multiple comorbidities; continuing breakthroughs in biomedical and medtech research which change care strategies and needs; and the increasing provision of care outside hospital environments. Meeting these challenges calls for investment in healthcare science research, education, and innovation.

To meet these challenges, Investor AB donated SEK 10 million in 2013 to the establishment of an endowed Chair in Innovative Care at Karolinska Institutet. This competitive position, which integrates health and social care research, was awarded to Professor Carol Tishelman in October 2014 and is based at the Department of Learning, Informatics, Management and Ethics (LIME) where she leads the Innovative Care research group (ki.se/en/lime/innovative-care) with Assoc. Prof Lars E. Eriksson. Tishelman has a joint position with Karolinska University Hospital, Center for Innovation, as University nurse with responsibility for strategic healthcare innovation.
