Rehabilitation and Health Promotion Research Group

About 15 percent of the World population live with a disability according to WHO. This number is growing because more people live longer with different health challenges.

The main objective of the research group is to gain more knowledge about how people with short or long-term health challenges in various life stages and settings are coping and further might improve their daily lives.

Rehabilitation and health promotion include processes where several actors cooperate in order to enable the best possible function and coping, independence and social participation. Promoting one’s own health in interaction with his or her environment is a central issue, which implies focus both on a system and individual level, across sectors, and members of the research group have a background from various health and social sciences.

There is great need for extending knowledge about rehabilitation and health promotion. The research group studies the development, implementation, and effects of various interventions and health promotion processes.
