The PHR research programme focuses on two key public health themes:
Mounting evidence suggests a major impact of early life experiences on later-life health outcomes.
In addition, the prevalence of chronic disease increases with age and life expectancy is increasing more rapidly than healthy life expectancy. This requires new approaches to increase social and work participation of people with health problems.
The PHR researchers conduct research in close collaboration with practitioners and clinical groups from disciplines such as Orthopaedic Surgery & Sports Medicine, Psychiatry, Paediatrics, Oncology, Neurology, and Rehabilitation and with health professionals such as physical therapists.
The PHR team is multidisciplinary and consists of public health physicians, social scientists, and health scientists.
All PHR programme members are closely connected to public and occupational health organizations, as well as other practice-based organizations that can implement the evidence produced by our programme.
