Complex Health Interventions

Complex interventions are widely used in the health service, in public health practice, and in areas of social policy. Complex interventions are usually described as interventions that contain several interacting components. We aim to develop complex interventions containing Mobile Applications, Artificial Intelligence, health components​ and collaboration between healthcare sectors. 

Ongoing project

  • ​Developing an intervention to promote recovery for patients with depression after transference to primary healthcare​​​

The aim of this study is to develop a complex intervention to promote recovery and prevent relapse and readmission of adults with unipolar depressive disorder when transferring from the secondary to the primary healthcare sector. The intervention will be developed through a co-design process with stakeholders. The co-design process will describe and analyze experiences of the different stakeholders involved in the treatment of barriers and facilitators for trans-sectoral transition and collaboration across sector borders. This involves patients, GPs, mental- and social healthcare professionals.

The study started in November 2021

The Danish Data Protection Agency (P-2020-1096)​ and the Regional Ethics Committee (H-21060600) has approved the study. 

Upcoming project

  • Recovery-by-eHealth: A ​complex intervention aiding recovery in patients with depression discharged from psychiatric outpatient clinics - a 12 months randomized controlled clinical trial


Recovery-by-eHealth aims to investigate whether a complex intervention using a Mobile App and a trans-sectoral collaboration scheme between psychiatric outpatient clinics, General Practitioners, Private Practicing Psychiatrists and Centre for Social Medicine can improve the recovery-process and thereby prevent relapse of depression and readmissions in patients trans-sectoral transition from secondary health care to primary health care.

The Danish Data Protection Agency (P-2020-1096), and the Regional Ethics Committee (H-20076894) has approved the Recovery-by-eHealth study. It is registered on ClinicalTrials.gov (NCT04675684).
We are currently apply funding for the project.
