Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Psychiatry

His primary areas of investigation include Job strain, Gerontology, Cohort study, Psychosocial and Epidemiology. His studies in Job strain integrate themes in fields like Odds ratio, Surgery, Myocardial infarction, Physical therapy and Occupational stress. His Gerontology study integrates concerns from other disciplines, such as Obesity, Relative risk, Job satisfaction, Biostatistics and Risk factor.

His Cohort study research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Coronary heart disease, Demography, Hazard ratio, Socioeconomic status and Job control. His biological study spans a wide range of topics, including Chronic fatigue syndrome, Irritability, Social support, Occupational safety and health and Low back pain. His Epidemiology study incorporates themes from Psychiatry, Audiology, Quality of life and Public health.

His most cited work include:

  • Job decision latitude, job demands, and cardiovascular disease : a prospective study of Swedish men (1278 citations)
  • Current issues relating to psychosocial job strain and cardiovascular disease research. (816 citations)
  • Job strain as a risk factor for coronary heart disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data. (608 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Psychosocial, Job strain, Gerontology, Psychiatry and Internal medicine. Within one scientific family, Töres Theorell focuses on topics pertaining to Epidemiology under Psychosocial, and may sometimes address concerns connected to Public health. His work is dedicated to discovering how Job strain, Risk factor are connected with Relative risk and other disciplines.

His Gerontology study combines topics in areas such as Obesity, Cohort study, Cross-sectional study, Demography and Life course approach. In his study, Developmental psychology and Blood pressure is inextricably linked to Clinical psychology, which falls within the broad field of Psychiatry. His Internal medicine research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Endocrinology and Cardiology.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Psychosocial (22.07%)
  • Job strain (19.31%)
  • Gerontology (18.62%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2011-2020)?

  • Job strain (19.31%)
  • Gerontology (18.62%)
  • Cohort study (10.00%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

Töres Theorell focuses on Job strain, Gerontology, Cohort study, Risk factor and Demography. His Job strain research incorporates themes from Odds ratio, Internal medicine, Publication bias, Myocardial infarction and Prospective cohort study. His Publication bias research integrates issues from Psychosocial and Clinical psychology.

The concepts of his Gerontology study are interwoven with issues in Sedentary lifestyle, Obesity, Cross-sectional study, Life course approach and Cohort. His Risk factor research is multidisciplinary, relying on both Coronary heart disease, Meta-analysis, Disease, Hazard ratio and Pediatrics. His work deals with themes such as Relative risk, Lower risk and Socioeconomic status, which intersect with Demography.

Between 2011 and 2020, his most popular works were:

  • Job strain as a risk factor for coronary heart disease: a collaborative meta-analysis of individual participant data. (608 citations)
  • Long working hours and risk of coronary heart disease and stroke : a systematic review and meta-analysis of published and unpublished data for 603 838 individuals (312 citations)
  • Perceived job insecurity as a risk factor for incident coronary heart disease: systematic review and meta-analysis (206 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Internal medicine
  • Disease
  • Psychiatry

His main research concerns Gerontology, Job strain, Cohort study, Risk factor and Demography. The various areas that he examines in his Gerontology study include Obesity, Meta-analysis, Life course approach, Job control and Cohort. Töres Theorell has researched Job strain in several fields, including Cross-sectional study, Sedentary lifestyle, Odds ratio and Heart disease.

The Cohort study study which covers Publication bias that intersects with Social support, Attributable risk, Confounding, Incidence and Psychosocial. His study in Risk factor is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Prospective cohort study, Myocardial infarction and Hazard ratio. His work carried out in the field of Demography brings together such families of science as Relative risk and Socioeconomic status.
