Her post-doc research project will focus on male patients’ experiences on chronic widespread pain and fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is considered as a health challenge of working aged women. Only 5-10% of the patients are male and therefore their experiences are rarely explored.

Sallinen has experience and expertise in narrative research methodology and also in the coming post doc project “what about men?”, patients’ stories about experiences of illness and recovery will be collected and analyzed. In addition to her own research project Sallinen will participate in ongoing projects of the research group where the long-term impacts of various chronic illnesses are studied.

– Marie Curie programs are highly appreciated forms of international research funding. Working in an internationally well acknowledged research group will certainly give Merja Sallinen an opportunity to deepen her competence and to expand her research network. From the vantage point of SAMK this is a remarkable opening that gives us international visibility and gives new opportunities to expand co-operation in the EU-programs in the future, says SAMK’s President Juha Kämäri.
