Prevention-Policy & Practice (PPP)

The research group PPP aims to generate evidence for effective prevention and promotion in national and global health care.

This includes studies on the effectiveness of innovative tobacco prevention interventions in Swedish primary care. Also the role of big data for health care policy is studied in a new consortium. We use mixed methods and robust evaluation designs.

Currently a collaborative prevention project between Karolinska Institutet and Stockholm region, aiming to develop a strategy for implementing a new treatment called “Tobacco Cessation on Prescription” with a focus on preventing mental ill health, is carried out.
