Promoting Health and Personalised Care
Our challenge is to attune population-based methods with highly individualized approaches in health promotion and personalized care, being inclusive for disadvantaged people and focusing on implementation issues.
We aim to develop, apply and test new theories, interventions and research methods to promote health and to implement personalized care and reflect on relevant ethical implications of new developments. Our research focuses on areas such as personalized prevention and healthcare interventions using innovative eHealth, interprofessional learning, and shared decision-making principles. To optimize societal impact, we collaborate with all relevant stakeholders, such as citizens, patients, health care professionals, scientists and policy makers.
