Knowledge sharing

The overall aim is to contribute to the development of evidence-based practice by sharing and developing knowledge. Target groups are both the professionals within the Health Care System, and laypeople, managers, politicians, the press etc.


REHPA works in cycles between mapping, intervention, evaluation and communication. We work with many interdisciplinary designs and methods, exploring rehabilitation and palliative care and how they impact on health organisations, professionals and everyday life for patients, relatives and carers.

We work with a wide variety of people, professions and organizations at all levels in research, education, health care and civil society.

Professional guidance and sparring

REHPA offers guidance and advice for students and professionals who are, or are going to undertake specific projects on rehabilitation and palliative care. We offer an advisory meeting of up to 2 hours at REHPA. The meeting is based on a written presentation of the project/problem (max 5 A4 pages) that you must submit before the meeting.

In special cases, REHPA can continue to provide sparring/advice in the form of ongoing consultancy. The needs and opportunities for this will be identified at the initial meeting.

Guidance from international expert

Researchers and clinical professionals may also request guidance for up to two hours from REHPA’s affiliated international professor, who each visit Denmark for one week, twice a year:

Professor Rod Taylor (rehabilitation) (link to University of Glasgow)

The possibility of a meeting depends on the visiting professors’ programme and the relevance of the project. The project must involve rehabilitation or palliative care – or the coordination and interaction between the two. A project description/problem (max 5 A4 pages) should be submitted and will be assessed individually.

All guidance arrangements are only made by prior agreement. We therefore encourage you to contact us about the possibilities before sending your submission. If you are interested, please write to us at rehpa@rsyd.dk.

We look forward to hearing from you and about your project.
