Research

Healthy aging and the promotion of healthy lifestyles can summarize the research projects that I am currently working in (described below under "Research projects"). In addition to this, I participate in several more method-oriented projects in health economics. Validating the instrument EQ 5D 5L in Sweden and in Vietnam are two important projects. Other projects are health projects that evaluate new treatment methods in prostate cancer treatment or alternative nursing methods for severe heart disease or severe pain.
