Personal profile

Research areas

I work with the use of drugs in its broadest sense. My research usually builds on either Danish or international health care registry data, and seek to describe known or unknown side effects to drug use. I’m also the Head of Research at the Hospital Pharmacy, Odense University Hospital, where we work to address the challenges around sector transitions and with ‘deprescribing’, that is, the reduction of unnecessary medication, in particular in patients nearing the end of their life.
