Presentation

The applied research and development (aR&D) strives to produce implementable solutions that are meaningful to our field partners, educators and students and help them acquire the needed insight to aim for excellence in quality of care.

Our field of action is focused on proximity research. We therefore work in close relationship with policy makers, stakeholders, professional associations, health providers, educators, and patients to document and consolidate sound strategies for addressing health challenges across disciplines.

Our research units focus on three topics:

  • Ageing
  • Mobility and musculoskeletal care
  • Complex nursing interventions

The recent activities of our research units are summarized in the following document: Biennial Report 2016-2017.

Our activities are also periodically gathered and published in our Research Journal:
