Areas of own research

  1. Longitudinal epidemiological survey of a general population cohort born 1936 and health examined at age 40, 45, 50, and 60 years. My doctoral thesis is about the most common health problems in the population. I am especially interested in self-rated health and ‘risks and health resources’ being analysed with follow-up data.
  2. Research in general practice about reasons for contact, diagnosis, and activities.
  3. Qualitative research in general practice about clinical communication in order to shift the attention of the general practitioner from risk factors to self-assessed health resources.
