Through the years we have focused on aspects of healthy aging, for example in our projects on chronic conditions.
Chronic conditions for which no treatment is available, are are often not of great interest to doctors. This is not surprising, because it is also very frustrating for a doctor not to be able to cure a patient. But these patients are left with their chronic fatigue, ringing in the ears, headaches or intestinal complaints.
We set up a string of projects answering questions like:
- How of these patients daily lifes are affected by their condition.
- What factors influence the quality of their lifes?
Our results help patient organizations to seek understanding and support from patients and their environment.
