Sickness absence is a public health problem with consequences for individuals, health care, insurance organizations, employers and society. Nevertheless, the scientific knowledgebase is very limited.
We conduct research, systematic literature reviews, post graduate training, networking, and education regarding sickness absence, work disability, health, and living conditions. The group is interdisciplinary and multi-professional and holds about 35 people. We run several large research projects, in which factors at different structural levels are included, both from individual-, organizational and societal levels and focus on contemporary problems often in close cooperation with clinicians or other stakeholders.
