The Research Group is conducting large randomized trials and observation studies to test and compare diagnostic and therapeutic clinical interventions in different areas of clinical medicine. The overarching goal is to find out what works and what does not. More than 300,000 patients are currently enrolled in studies run by the group.
We focus on care and support issues related to the elderly. The research group strives for excellence in research and research education and training at the local, national, Nordic, and international levels.
Research in health economics and policy generally has close links to current issues in politics.
Economic evaluation involves methods to assess the cost-effectiveness of treatments, procedures, diagnostics, screening practices, healthcare delivery routes and technologies in a broad sense.
Our major research area reflects the single most frquent health care intervention and the most common clinical decicion made in general practice, namely prescribing of medications. Our aim is to identify medical needs in this field and to addresses GP's prescription practice in various ways in order to improve the quality of care.
SHEP delivers critical and reflexive knowledge of how society, health and power are interconnected, and has an impact on how health and illness might be understood in a social, cultural and historical context. SHEP creates a bridge between disciplines and fields of research.
