Research at the Department of Care Science 

The research at the Department of Care Science is based on the general “equal health and care” research environment. Care Science extends from the beginning of life, and throughout life to old age, and death. Our research is conducted in close collaboration with society at large. The knowledge developed is intended to support sustainable changes that will be of significance for the individual, the professional field and for healthcare organisations.

Doctoral courses 

Most of the research at the Faculty of Health and Society is interdisciplinary, which opens up new and exciting areas of research beyond the subject divisions that have traditionally existed between medicine and social sciences.
