Presentation by Pia:

Mental Health Services in the Region of Southern Denmark participates as a partner in the research center BRIDGE; as part of the efforts to strengthen the collaboration between the parties, up to 20% of the statistical consultant’s position at the Mental Health Services is made available to researchers associated with BRIDGE.

My name is Pia Veldt Larsen and I am statistical consultant at the Mental Health Services in the Region of Southern Denmark. I have a PhD in statistics and have previously worked as associate professor of statistics/biostatistics at universities in England and Denmark, and as biostatistician at e.g. the Research Unit for General Practice in Odense and the Center of Clinical Epidemiology at OUH. During my employments, I have collaborated with many research groups within a great variety of areas of health science.

Statistical assistance can be provided in relation to all parts of a research project from the initial preparation of research design to publication. The assistance includes statistical advice on choice of methods, performing analyses, interpreting results and describing methods, as well as help with the review process. Co-authorship or other form of recognition follow the Vancouver Protocol.
