"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 treatment and promote a faster recovery is therefore important, both for the patient and society"
- Professor Hanne Tönnesen
