Expertises

Clinical oncology; epidemiology; prostate cancer

Main research areas

My main focus is prostate cancer survivors. Through linkage of data from nationwide population-based registries we investigate the risk of depression and cardiovascular disease in prostate cancer patients. Research on this field is sparse and we plan to contribute to the knowledge on the field. Knowing the patients at risk of depression is valuable in the clinical setting in order to install appropriate preventive measures. In perspective, appropriate screening-, prevention- and intervention programs need to be evaluated in randomized clinical trials.
