"A critical stage in life is when a person becomes a patient and enters a short or longer clinical pathway. To undergo treatment is stressful, both physically and mentally. To improve patient safety and promote a faster recovery is therefore important, both for the patient and society"
- Professor Hanne Tönnesen

Fast-track implementation of patient-centered health promotion
Research, education, networks, communication and programs for integrated clinical pathways
