Our current research projects
Motivational interview for Return to Work
Is motivational interviewing more effective than usual follow up for return to work in people on sick leave due to musculoskeletal conditions? In this project, we are going to look into motivational interview as a strategy for return to work. Read more about this project here.

Back complaints in elderly
Almost everyone experiences back pain at some point in their life. For some people, it is a rather quick episode, passing within a few days. Fort others, the pain persists. We aim at figuring out why. Our preliminary results show that as many as 80% of elderly with a new episode of back pain still has pain 3 months after their first visit to their primary care practitioner. Why is that?

Musculoskeletal pain and mental disorders in adolecents
Little is known about the risk factors for musculoskeletal pain and mental disorders in emerging adults (from 18 - 29 years of age)? In this study, we aim at following a large cohort of young adults for 10 years to assess potential risk factors for persistent musculoskeletal pain and mental health disorders.

Data collection in primary health care
FysioPol is a database for quality assurance and evaluation of physiotherapy practice at outpatient clinics at OsloMet. The aim of FysioPol is to give students experience with standardized data collection in clinical practice, as well as using the data to answer different physiotherapy specific research questions. Various projects have emerged based on these data. Read more about this project here.
