Healthcare Sciences and e-Health
Our research concerns identifying, predicting, and treating disease-related emotional distress among those affected by the disease or close ones. Together with people with own experience of disease in one-self and close ones we develop, test, evaluate, and implement psychological interventions, several of these are webbased. We also investigate whether different recruitment methods and methods to support continued participation in research studies has an impact on recruitment and retention rates.
Our group hosts the strategic research programme Uppsala Psychosocial Care Programme (U-CARE), www.u-care.uu.se
