My research concerns health care services and epidemiology for chronic disease management and prevention, currently with the focus on medicines use. In the social and clinical pharmacy context, I work within medicines use and clinical pharmacy fields, mainly using quantitative research methods.  

The projects I conducted include:

·       feasibility of the model for multi-morbidity care in general practice

·       effects of neonatal vitamin D on chronic disease risk later in life

·       rehabilitation effects on health care utilization in COPD patients

·       barriers to cancer pain management with opioids

The projects I am currently involved are:

·       appropriateness of polypharmacy prescribing assessed using register data

·       development of primary care based interventions to build up vitamin D knowledge in young women with ethnic minority background

·       development of pharmacy and general practitioner collaboration models for medication review

·       effects of anti-inflammatory drugs on cardiovascular risk in obese individuals 

·       questionnaire surveys for awareness and compliance with pregnancy prevention measures when using drugs with teratogenic effects

My teaching consists of quantitative research method teaching and student project supervision. I am furthermore interested in exploring and utilizing online teaching possibilities.
