Aims and objectives

About 80% of our patients are acutely admitted, and the department has the highest number of acute pediatric cases in Denmark. The hospital has the highest number of deliveries, and we have a large department of neonatally. Furthermore the department has a high specialised function of children with gastroenterological diseases, HIV and acquired cerebral damage.

From 2017 the age of the patients will be up to 18 years and consequently the department will transform to a department for children and young people. We strive to deliver professional and evidence treatment and care. We also prioritise education highly and train many medical students, junior doctors, nursing students and medical secretary students. Moreover we prioritise research and development.         

Focus areas

General and acute paediatrics, neonatology, gastroenterology, HIV, training in medicine to medical students, and research in clinical nursing and care giving to children and their families in hospital and in transfer to other hospital departments or primarily health care. 

Disciplines, methods and tools

We do pro- and retrospective descriptive studies and intervention studies. We use quantitative and qualitative studies. We also do research in e-based care of sick children and their families and training of medical students. We have national and international collaboration.
