Welcome to the research environment Sustainable Active Ageing (SAA)
The research environment Sustainable Active Ageing (SAA), which we started to build up in 2009/2010 is a multidisciplinary field within the School of Health Science, for describing and analyzing older people's health and wellbeing including their need of care from and, in a socially sustainable perspective.
The research environment aims to provide new and increased knowledge about older people's health and wellbeing and, on their own and related parties need of treatment / care in a socially sustainable perspective.
This research group aims to actively engage in, as well as to initiate, research that will create new, as well as increase existing, knowledge about older people's health and care. The point of departure for our research is older people's health and wellbeing and their everyday needs that we observe in the health care sector, from community care to hospital care.
