Health Services Research

The area of Health Services Research studies, evaluates and compares health care systems on a national and international level. The focus lies on aspects such as structures, economy, organization and results of health care systems. Our research analyses and evaluates the current Swedish system, with the aim to increase quality of care and achieve optimal use of resources.

​You find our different research areas in the menu to the left.

The Health Service Research group at our departement is indeed interdiciplinary. Both in terms of the theories from various disciplines applied in our research and in terms of the different scientific backgrounds of research members. Here we have diciplines such as medicine, nursing, psychology, bioethics, political science, lingustics and economy represented, and many researchers with long experience in the field. The Health Service Research group participates in several science networks, and also works in close collaboration with clinical practice.
