Professor Morten Bondo Christensen works with access to the healthcare system in the case of sudden illness and with the consultations which typically take place via telephone. For example, he and his research colleagues study the organisation of the emergency medical service, including contact patterns and conditions that may lead to delays in the patient being treated. This has, among other things, led to initiatives such as the “emergency access button” when contacting the emergency medical service by ringing 1813.

The newly appointed professor typically heads very practice-centred projects in which the results can relatively quickly and easily lead to changes in practice in the healthcare system. His research group is currently engaged in research projects on the use of video consultations in the emergency medical service, the blurring of tasks and changes in the pattern of contact to the primary health service during the Covid-19 epidemic. 

Morten Bondo Christensen, who took up his professorship at the Department of Public Health on 1 December 2020, is furthermore a general practitioner in Aarhus and is affiliated with the Research Unit for general Practice.
