Monitoring and analysis
The research group performs the periodical Health Profile Investigations (Sundhedsprofilundersøgelsen) in the Capital Region. A significant part of the research at SPHP is centered around this data, in addition to monitoring and evaluating of trial programmes through the Evaluation and Analysis model. Results from these studies are used to supporting and ensuring that national public health programmes function optimally and seamlessly.
Research in this field investigates the effectiveness and utility og health promoting and preventative state initiatives. the research projects are primarily intervention and implementation focussed. Among these are the following ongoing projects:
A short RCT-study investigating metabolic and behavioural consequences of reducing salt consumption in the Danish population.
A project in six regions investigating the effect of economic reward of stopping smoking as a means for recruiting socioeconomically disadvantaged citizens to regional councelling offers.
Our healthy weekday (Vores Sunde Hverdag): Based on the experience and data from the SoL project to establish a concrete, coordinated and interdisciplinary preventative effort in regional governments.
This section is involved with research in the field of cronic disease, specifically with rehabilitation and vulnerable patient groups. A part of the group are researchers in the national RCT study into active patient support. Patients with a particularily high risk of advanced healthcare requirements are offered a special support from specialised doctors and medical practitioners. The resulting effect on health and quality of life is investigated. The RESULT project is a 5-year
