diploma holder in Nursing from the University of Valladolid (2012). After gaining experience internship, I continued my training by completing the Master's Degree in Palliative Care Nursing (2014) at the University of Navarra (UNAV). This, in turn, allowed me to work at the Hospital Fundación Vianorte-Laguna Cuidados Paliativos, whose mission statement is to provide care and support to those patients and families with advanced chronic illnesses. In 2014, I received a two-year scholarship to do research work at the School of Nursing at UNAV. I also advanced my academic and research training during that time, completing a Master's Degree in internship Advanced and management in Nursing (2016) at UNAV. After its completion, I started my programs of study of doctorate as staff researcher at training (PIF). During doctorate, I completed a pre-doctoral stay at the School of Nursing, Midwifery & Health Systems, University College Dublin (Ireland) with Dr Philip Joseph Larkin and his group of research Chronic Illness and Palliative Care. In 2019 I obtained the degree scroll Doctor of Nursing (Cum Laude, doctorate International and award Extraordinary from doctorate). Since September of that year I am structural professor of the School of Nursing at UNAV, coordinating the International Nursing Program and teaching teaching of Degree and postgraduate program.
I am researcher partner of the group of research 'research in Nursing Care' of the high school of research Sanitaria de Navarra (IdiSNA). Along with this, I belong to the group of research 'Innovation for a person-centered care' since 2014. I actively participate in the research line "Strategies to implement person/family centered care in chronic heart failure" and "Strategies to implement person/family centered care in palliative care". My research focuses primarily on improving the health experiences of individuals and families with advanced and terminal chronic conditions. Thus, I have multiple publications of impact in these areas, through which the meaning of the experience of living with Chronic Heart Failure (CHF) and the experience of families caring for a person at the end of life at home have been explored. In addition, I have participated in several research projects in this line, including the one funded by ISCIII-FEDER funds that ended in May 2022, where a unique scale to assess changes in the experience of living with CHF was designed and validated. Thus, I have experience in programs of study of research with quantitative and qualitative methodologies in populations with advanced and terminal chronic processes. In addition, I have collaborated with The Gothenburg Centre for Person-Centred Care (GPCC) in Sweden since 2021. The GPCC is a national interdisciplinary research center established in 2010 with strategic investment from the Swedish Government at research. The GPCC brings together more than 100 national and international researchers from diverse fields collaborating in thirty projects and groups at research. Research is conducted in person-centered care, rehabilitation and care of patients with different pathologies, organization of person-centered care and issues related to clinical application and Education. I collaborate in programs of study of this center, developing randomized controlled trials with approach CCP with people with complex chronic-advanced processes. I am also a member of the board Board of Directors of the Spanish Society of Palliative Care (SECPAL) and the Navarre Society of Palliative Care (PALIAN), and a member of the Association of Cardiovascular Nursing & Allied Professions (ACNAP).
