Kim Ekelund focuses on the learners' perception of simulation and their emotional activation, based on their simulation and clinical experience, allocated roles, and scenario design. He has a great interest in what makes great competent teamwork, and has been involved in developing, and evaluating e-learning as part of the specialty course in obstetric anesthesia. 

His plans for the future includes studying the experienced physicians use of Self Regulated Learning (SRL) in order to transfer what has been learned in compulsory courses in anesthesiology to their dynamic clinical workplace and how specialists in anesthesiology handle the barriers using the SRL as part of their lifelong learning.
