Current research projects


FYSIOPRIM is a collaboration with University of Oslo and the Municipality of Trondheim, we currently collect large amounts of patient and therapist data from physiotherapy primary care by tablet computers throughout Norway, and aims to compile knowledge of patients, treatment and their outcome. 

2. Computerized clinical decision support system (SUPPORTPRIM)

Development of a computerized clinical decision support system applying case based reasoning on patient data from the FYSIOPRIM project. The aim is to give physiotherapists and their patients support and advice for treatment based on knowledge of previuos and similar patients with successful outcome. This project will thus move from advising treatment based on average treatment effects from RCTs to personalised recommendations and shared decision making based on knowledge of successful outcome in previuos similar patients.
