Hanna Falk Erhag is an Associate Professor in Health Care Science at the University of Gothenburg and a senior researcher at the Centre for Ageing and Health – Age Cap at the University of Gothenburg, Gothenburg Sweden. Her areas of expertise are self-rated health and quality of life as personal ability in old age. More specifically, her studies focus on the demographic, cognitive, behavioral risk and protective factors of self-rated health in large population based samples of older adults aged 70-95 years that have been followed for more than 25 years, and how changes in self-rated health reflect psychological adaptation to worsening health and functional limitations in old age.
