  • The research project that I have worked with during my PhD is within the reserach group HELD in the project Make My Day. The project aims to evaluate the feasibility and effect of a digital and person-centered prevention program aiming to reduce the risk of stroke. We have a primary preventative perspective that focuses on prevention of stroke by supporting people to acheive healthy activity patterns. A key concept and theoretical underpinning of the research project and the complex intervention we are testing in primary health care ise engaging everyday activities.
