Personlig profil

Forsknings- og udviklingsområder

Julie Sandell Jacobsen is employed as a postdoctoral researcher at the Research Unit for General practice in Aarhus, as a senior lecturer at VIA University College Aarhus and as an external lecturer in epidemiology at the Department of Public Health, Aarhus University. Julie finished her PhD in April 2020, focusing on the outcome of hip-preserving surgery in patients with hip dysplasia.  

Julie Sandell Jacobsen has done research in young patients with hip disorders since 2009, publishing her first papers on patients with external snapping hips in 2012-2013. Her master thesis focused on patients with hip dysplasia, publishing two articles as first author (2013-14) and later two papers as co-author (2015, 2018). After the finalization of her master, she worked as a research physical therapist at the Department of Physiotherapy and Occupational Therapy at Aarhus University Hospital. She worked in this position over three years, initiating four further research projects (2012-2015). One of these projects was a part of her PhD.

Besides research, Julie Sandell Jacobsen has a great interest in lecturing and supervising young students. She has taught and supervised bachelor students from VIA University College (DK) and bachelor and master students from Aarhus University (DK) since 2008 (still going strong). Currently, she is a co-supervisor for two PhD students with the research projects MoveMom and MoveyourLungs, focusing on physical activity. In MoveyourLungs, a social prescribing intervention will be developed for citizens with chronic lung disease, inspired by the Medical Research Council (MRC) Framework of Complex interventions in Health.

Julie has a great experience in the clinical and ultrasonographic assessment of patients with shoulder, knee and hip/groin pain. Since 2009, her research has primarily focused on young and middle-aged patients with hip and groin pain. Her postdoctoral research project focuses on an exercise and patient education intervention for patients with hip dysplasia who are not receiving surgical treatment (MovetheHip). MovetheHip is also inspired by the MRC framework for complex interventions in Health. The evaluation includes a feasibility study, an effectiveness study, a process-evaluation study and a health-economic study.

Besides researching young patients with hip and groin pain. Her research also focuses on the cross-cultural adaptation of patient-reported outcomes, young and adult patients with knee injuries, adult patients with shoulder pain, and now, as part of the “Move” research group: https://feap.au.dk/forskning/fysisk-aktivitet-move/, she will focus more on designing and evaluation of complex interventions and doing research that promotes physical activity.
