Cardiopulmonary risk communication - Participants understanding and preferences
Risk information is complex. What people want to know depends on several factors. How do research participants and patients perceive risk and what are their preferences regarding communication of cardiopulmonary risk?
The Swedish SCAPIS (Swedish CardioPulmonary bioImage Study) study identifies risk factors for heart and lung disease. They will collect health information and blood samples from 30,000 people. The results of the SCAPIS study will hopefully be implemented in health care, the question then is how health care professionals should give this complex information to patients.
This project hopes to aid patients, health professionals and policy makers by exploring hthe SCAPIS participants understanding and preferences regarding cardiopulmonary risk communication

We are investigating risk information from serval perspectives.
Handling incidental findings
How should we handle incidental findings in biobank and -omics research? Jennifer Viberg Johansson's PhD project examined the arguments for and against disclosure of incidental findings.
Communicating risk for heart disease
Sofia Lavén is studying cardiovascular risk communication in primary care and how general practitioners value and communicate lifestyle and genetic risk factors.
