I have a special interest in the measurement of the effects of health care in terms of quality-of-life. Participation in projects about, for example, chronic pain in an elderly population, and employers’ measures in order to get sick-listed employees back to work is also part of my remit. Teaching mainly comprises acting as tutor for student groups on the HEL-1 course and the first semester of the doctors’ education.
