Kristin Bjordal, head of "Research Support Services" unit at Oslo University Hospital and professor II the Institute of Clinical Medicine at the University of Oslo was appointed "Researcher of the Month" for November 2018 by the South-Eastern Norway Regional Health Authority (Helse Sør-Øst RHF).
Her research is presented in a feature article entitled "Cancer patients' quality of life should mean more for the choice of treatment". "If a treatment allows the patient to live a little longer but the patient suffers a lot during the treatment period, this may not be the treatment we recommend", says Bjordal.
