U-CARE

We conduct research within Mental health, eHealth, and Global Health. Our research concerns e.g. consequences of disease for patients and close ones, digital tools, and psychological interventions.

Welcome to U-CARE!

We are conducting research within the Mental health, eHealth, and Global health areas. Our projects within the Mental health area examine short- and long-term psychological consequences of somatic illness for the persons with the illness and their close ones. We are especially interested in how men are affected. Our research within eHealth has the overall purpose to develop, test, evaluate, and implement digital tools and psychological interventions. We are also conducting research within the area of Global health, e.g. investigating whether digital support to parents can increase children’s chance to survive a cancer disease.
