Research description

I am part of several intervention studies investigating the effect of physical activity to improve health in long-term condtions: rheumatoid arthritis, cancer and musculoskeletal pain. The focus in my research is on the health professionals (often physiotherapists) who deliver the interventions. They often have to change their clinical behaviors and we study these processes by self-reports and observational data (e.g. video recordings)
