Own research projects:

OP_65 Detection of individuals at risk of osteoporosis through registers: The aim of this study is to investigate the association of previous conditions or diseases (determined using the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-10 code)) and osteoporotic fractures in the Danish population with the aim of ultimately developing tools for identifying and treating persons at high risk of sustaining their first major osteoporotic fracture.

OP_66 The ROSE study (Risk-Stratified Osteoporosis Strategy Evaluation): ROSE is a randomised population-based study, including 20,904 Danish women aged 65-81 years, investigating the effectiveness of a two-step screening programme for osteoporosis, using a questionnaire based on FRAX® followed by DXA-scan. Further, the study is expected to provide knowledge about cost-effectiveness, patient preferences of screening programme to prevent fractures.

Supervisor for:

  • Donna Lykke Wollf, PhD-student, MSc, OP_334 COMPASS - Chronic Patient in Several Setting, This PhD-study focuses on patients with multiple chronic diseases treated in hospital ambulatories. The overall aim of the project is to optimize health care pathways for these patients and the objectives of the PhD-study are to describe the clinical epidemiology and develop a screening tool to identify patients with a future high healthcare utilization.
  • Jonas Sanberg Jensen, PhD-student. Project title: Utilization, outcome and development of laparoscopic antireflux surgery.

Also involved in:

OP_41 Morbidity and mortality in polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS): Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is the most common hormonal disease among women in the fertile age and is seen in 5-8 %. PCOS is characterized by hyper-inflammation and insulin resistance, which along with obesity may be associated with increased morbidity. The aim of this register study is to investigate the linkage between the PCOS diagnosis, illness and mortality.

OP_124 Validation of diagnosis codes in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD): The Danish National Patient Registry (LPR) is used in clinical epidemiological studies in IBD and therefore it is important that the diagnosis in the LPR correspond with reality. The purpose of this study is to validate the IBD diagnosis codes in LPR for patients with suspected inflammatory bowel disease, Crohns disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). Patients' records are reviewed and it is determined whether the disease and localisation correspond with the information from LPR.

OP_252 Atypical Femoral Fractures: A Population-Based Study of Risk Factors and Relationship to Bisphosphonate Exposure and Discontinuation (Case cohort study):  Longitudinal population-based study using Danish national radiology, pharmacy and other health care data, with expert radiograph review and classification of every subtrochanteric and femoral shaft fracture during 2010-2014, to elucidate risk factors for Atypical Femur Fractures(AFF).
