Unit profile


Every citizen lives in a society with its impact, from a status of total isolation with no friends or family to a well-functioning network. What does this do to the citizen? Our research stretches from the new-born to the age old pensioners, from the young and healthy to the old and frail, from natives to immigrants. How do medicine and society help our population and patients? What can we do to improve life for the sick and disabled? Research areas: 1) E-health – how can information technology help patients and the health care system. 2) Infections in primary care – In view of rising antibiotic resistance it is fundamental to investigate reasons for and patterns of prescription. 3) Drug-related problems in the elderly - interventions to optimize pharmacotherapy in the elderly. 4) Health care utilization, equity and equality – how does organizational and societal factors influence access and utilization for the citizen irrespective of social or cultural background?
