USN Research Group on Older Persons’ Health


The USN Eldreforsk research group

The interdisciplinary research group focuses on older persons. The purpose is to develop research-based knowledge of health-related transitions in old age, at both person and system levels. The aim is to contribute to excellent treatment and care, and to implement evidence based knowledge in collaboration with the field of practice. The research is primarily aimed at pre-frail older persons with risk of developing comprehensive healthcare needs and the frail older persons who are already dependent on an extensive and continuous healthcare.
