Our research focuses on:
Symptoms, healthcare-seeking and diagnosis

Medical risk analysis and medical risk communication
Relationships in general practice
Research initiative of activity studies and occupational therapy
The Research Unit of General Practices is established as a cooperation between University of Southern Denmark and an external research unit financed by the Research Foundation of General Practice.
Audit Project Odense (APO) and the affiliated EU project HAPPY Audit is also part of the Research Unit’s activities.
The Region of Southern Denmark has based the Practice Liaison Program and the Quality Development Consulting in proximity to the Research Unit of General Practice. Also the Danish General Practice Database under DAK-E and a University Medical Practice are housed within the building.
