Anaesthesia - Maria Cronhjort
At the department of Anaesthesia and Intensive care, clinicians conduct research within the field of anesthesia/perioperative care and intensive care. The proximity of patient care enables identification of clinical important research questions as well as facilitates the implementation of recent/new research results.
The main goal of the research is to improve care, treatment and outcomes for the critically ill and/or operated patients through clinical studies. The department also holds a clinical research unit with two employed research nurses with high competence and experience in patient-centered clinical research, study monitoring and complex data collection and biobanking. The unit has a well-structured system for study monitoring and follow-up.
