Emilie Friberg's research group

The research group is primarily focusing on: Risk factors for and consequences of sickness absence in relation to specific diagnoses, mainly multiple sclerosis, traffic injuries, and cancer. Another focus area is interactions between different actors within the disease- and sickness absence process, such as physicians, rehabilitation coordinators, other healthcare professionals, patients and the Social Insurance Agency. Further, we conduct systematic literature reviews within the area, we teach, and conduct other knowledge transfer activities.

The group is interdisciplinary and multi professional and uses both quantitative and qualitative analysis methods. The studies conducted are based on data from nationwide registers, questionnaires and interviews and include research questions from several disciplines, including insurance medicine, medicine, public health, psychology, sociology, social work, behavioural science and health economy.
