    Background - General health perception as measured by self-rated health (SRH) is an individual's synthesis of personal overall health and has value in its own right. In addition, this subjective perspective has a unique predictive power of subsequent mortality and adds valuable information not captured by objective measures. We studied the relationship between SRH and subsequent mortality to demonstrate ...

    Edvardsen, Trine Lise; Lorem, Geir F; Mehus, Grete (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-10-02)
    In Finnmark, the northernmost county of Norway, many villages are remote and scattered between vast stretches of uninhabited land, with mountain crossings that are often closed in winter or where one can only drive in single file behind a snowplough. This may mean periodic total isolation and daily challenges with long distances to other professionals and hospitals. These special circumstances mean ...
