About me

  • I am head of HTA Region Stockholm at Centre for Health Economics, Informatics
    and Health Services Research (CHIS) and affiliated researcher to LIME at KI.
    At HTA Region Stockholm we work with Health Technology Assessments (HTA)
    examining the consequences of using an intervention compared to existing
    alternatives in health care. An HTA is a systematic approach to assess
    clinical studies on benefits and harms as well as e.g., economic implications
    and ethical issues of an intervention. The purpose is to inform
    decision-making in order to promote an equitable, efficient, and high-quality
    health system.
    The most part of my career I have spent leading the work with HTAs as well as
    developing methods and conducting research related to HTA, with a main focus
    on GRADE (Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation).
    I am a member of the GRADE Guidance Group as well as one of the leads of the
    Scandinavian GRADE Network. On a national level I am the chair of the
    National working group on HTA/health economy and a member of Cochrane
    Sweden’s advisory board.


  • My current research involves advancing methods for evidence synthesis and
    health technology assessments. In particular it relates to the assessment of
    the certainty of evidence and the development of
    The Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation
