A long-standing collaboration between Arkhangelsk County and northern Norway on mental health service development in Arkhangelsk has promoted the integration ...
  • Universal linguistic hierarchies are not innately wired. Evidence from multiple adjectives 

    Leivada, Evelina; Westergaard, Marit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-01)
    <p><i>Background - </i>Linguists and psychologists have explained the remarkable similarities in the orderings of linguistic elements across languages by suggesting that our inborn ability for language makes available certain innately wired primitives. Different types of adjectives, adverbs, and other elements in the functional spine are considered to occupy fixed positions via innate hierarchies ...
  • Loss of life years due to unavailable helicopter emergency medical service: a single base study from a rural area of Norway 

    Zakariassen, Erik; Østerås, Øyvind; Nystøyl, Dag Ståle; Breidablik, Hans Johan; Solheim, Eivind; Brattebø, Guttorm; Ellensen, Vegard Skalstad; Hoff, Jana Midelfart; Hordnes, Knut; Aksnes, Arne; Heltne, Jon-Kenneth; Hunskaar, Steinar; Hotvedt, Ragnar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-29)
    <i>Background</i>: Despite the potential benefits of physician-staffed Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS), many dispatches to primary HEMS missions in Norway are cancelled before patient encounter. Information is sparse regarding the health consequences when medically indicated HEMS missions are cancelled and the patients are treated by a GP and ambulance staff only. We aimed to estimate ...
