My research interests are mainly: Qualitative research Systematic reviews Multimorbidity Disability Public Health
Background Childhood obesity poses a global health challenge. In recent years, there has been an increase in interventions that begin in pregnancy, putting the concept of early programming and early risk factors into practice. The present study aims to update the findings regarding interventions in the first 1000 days of life. Methods A systematic...
Background: The challenge posed by multimorbidity makes it necessary to look at new forms of prevention, a fact that has become heightened in the context of the pandemic. We designed a questionnaire to detect multimorbidity patterns in people over 50 and to associate these patterns with mental and physical health, COVID-19, and possible social ineq...

Background Governments and healthcare systems are facing multimorbidity (MM) as a major challenge due to the difficulties related to its proper identification and clinical management. Despite growing research on MM, its epidemiology is poorly understood due to the great complexity of underlying patterns of chronicity. The present review aims to ide...
Background Multimorbidity (MM) is associated with lower quality of life, greater disability, and higher use of health services. It is a complex problem that is difficult to capture due to the broad spectrum of concurrent chronic diseases involved. There is a need to identify and characterize patterns of chronic conditions in the local context of sp...
Multimorbidity is a growing challenge, associated with reduced quality of life, increased disability, increased health care utilisation, and increased mortality. There is a need to identify associations among patterns of chronic conditions and social determinants of health in the local context of specific population groups. This work aims to respon...
Multimorbidity is associated with lower quality of life, greater disability and higher use of health services and is one of the main challenges facing governments in Europe. There is a need to identify and characterize patterns of chronic conditions and analyse their association with social determinants not only from an individual point of view but...
Background: Childhood obesity poses a global health challenge. Despite efforts to reverse this situation in recent years, the figures remain high. In recent years, there has been an increase in interventions that begin in pregnancy, putting the concept of early programming into practice. The present study aims to update the findings regarding inter...
