Elisabeth Flo-Groeneboom er psykolog og professor ved Institutt for klinisk psykologi, Det psykologiske fakultet, Universitetet i Bergen (UiB). Hun tok PhD innen søvn og jobbet ved Senter for alders- og sykehjemsmedisin ved UiB i postdoktor-perioden. I dag forsker hun på og underviser om søvn, livsløp og fungering hos eldre og personer med demens.

Nåværende forskning er av translasjonell art med et klinisk og anvendt fokus, fra eksperimenter i lyslaboratoriet til implementering av multikomponentintervensjoner i Randomiserte kontrollerte studier(RCT). Flo-Groeneboom er leder for Human Light Lab, som i dag inkluderer 4 doktorgradsstudenter, 2 postdoktorer og 2 professorer.

Optimale lysbetingelser for bedre hukommelse og humør (ENLIGHT)

ENLIGHT-prosjektet undersøker hvorvidt lysterapi kan være en effektiv måte å forbedre tilværelsen for hjemmeboende personer med demens. Mangelen på systematiske og grunnleggende studier med personer med demens gjør dette til et viktig for videre teoretisk og metodologisk utvikling. 

DEM.LIGHT

Psykisk lidelse, atferds- og søvnproblemer rammer 90 % av personer med demens. I sykehjem i dag benyttes i stor grad psykofarmaka for å dempe symptomene, men det er ofte med manglende effekt og betydelige bivirkninger. Lysterapi viser lovende resultater, men det er et behov for større randomiserte og kontrollerte studier.

DEM.LIGHT installerte lysterapi-rom på demensenheter for å undersøke effekten på søvn, døgnrytme, atferdsproblemer, psykisk lidelse, medikamentbruk, smerte og livskvalitet.

KOSMOS

KOSMOS står for «KOmmunikasjon, Smertebehandling, Medikamentgjennomgang, Organisering av aktiviteter og Sikkerhet». KOSMOS er en praktisk intervensjon rettet mot kliniske og psykiatriske problemer, overmedisinering og sosiale behov hos pasienter på sykehjem.
