In January our whole department will be moving to a new building. There’s a sense of excitement and anticipation in the air, but in my corner of our office I am sometimes overwhelmed by a feeling of despair as I look at the piles of print outs and material filling not only my shelves but also the desk, spilling over to parts of the window and recently threatening to invade the floor under my desk… The other day, as I stood staring at the disaster area, to my surprise I noticed two brown paper boxes hidden in a corner. What is this? As I ventured into the dark history of my academic life, I found copy after copy of my PhD thesis! My masterpiece – forgotten and wasted!

A summary of the thesis can be found in the International Journal of Integrated Care.
So, if anyone is interested in a free copy of an interesting study on integrated IT in home care of elderly patients – let me know! I will gladly send them all over the world in the hope that someone will read, be inspired and continue to work to make healthcare better for all of us!
