Optimized Senior Patient Program - Optimed is one of 5 research groups at Clinical Research Centre.

The research focus of Optimed is to optimize treatment of older medical patients – including a focus on accelerated aging and identification of frail older patients.

One of the group’s core competencies is conducting large clinical trials in older medical patients in collaboration with the Acute Admission Ward at Hvidovre Hospital and municipal rehabilitation units in the Region of Copenhagen.

Optimed is an interdisciplinary research group of medical doctors, nurses, dietitians, physiotherapists, exercise physiologists, pharmacists, and statisticians. It comprises 3 senior researchers, 2 post-docs, 5 PhD students, as well as 8 research assistants and master students.

We collaborate with research groups throughout Denmark, as well as in the United States, the UK and New Zealand.

We are especially interested in sharing knowledge and research projects that aim to optimize trajectories of older patients across primary and secondary health care in Denmark.

We have had several of our PhD students visit research groups abroad, and we welcome international researchers and students, who which to spend time with us.​
