Tomi Lintonen, Ph.D
Utacas fellow 2004-2005

My research topics are roughly situated in the areas of public health and health promotion: adolescent health and health promotion, health among the aged and research and development in the use of new technology to promote
health.

Current research questions in the field of adolescent health and health promotion include an investigation on the continuities of alcohol use patterns into adulthood, violence and accidents connected with the use of alcohol and self-reported harms related to the use of alcohol. I am also involved in the research of health-related effects of the use of information and communication technology, e.g. obesity.

My research in the area of health among the aged includes involvement in an investigation of methodological issues around the measurement of self-rated health on the one hand, and a study of alcohol drinking patterns among the aged.

I have also developed a growing interest in the use of information and communication technology in health promotion. In a project led by Dr. Anne Konu, we have developed a web-based tool to be used in the assessment of well-being in school http://www2.edu.fi/hyvinvointiprofiili/. The tool has been adopted by the National Board of Education and the schools can use it free of charge. I am also currently searching for possibilities to start a project around a values-based decision-making tool to be used in social and health care organizations developed by Prof. David Seedhouse http://www.vide.co.nz/index.asp. Last but not least, I am working on conceptual analysis in the field of technology and health promotion.
