How can we prevent and treat chronic conditions (Chronic Pain, Oncology and HIV) targeting lifestyles for self-care, applying the evidence-based principles of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy in medicine?
We are planning systematic reviews in the above-named areas.

Education, Research & Supervission
ACT INSTITUTET has supervised more than 20 medical students since 2012. We have done studies and visited Buenos Aires, Argentina; San Francisco, USA; and of course most of the studies have been done here in Sweden.
The research programs are in the field of chronic conditions (pain, diabetes, HIV) and studied from a Behavioral and Lifestyle Medicine’s perspective.
One of the key foci of our research is the implementation and adaptation of Acceptance and Commitment Therapy for all the health professionals working with patients suffering of chronic diseases (cardiovascular, respiratory, diabetes, obesitas, neurological, inflammatory and mental health).
