The starting point of her research was to introduce and adapt the Contextual Activity Sampling System (CASS) methodology for clinical educational use and to contribute to a broader understanding of how students experience interprofessional learning activities.

This is important for enable support during clinical practice concerning several aspects of the education that must be taken into consideration.
