How our research benefits to society
The demand for care is increasing while the availability of healthcare personnel is decreasing. In addition, major socio-economic health differences and population decline play a role in our region. This jeopardizes the continuity of care. Continuity of care in primary care and long-term care is related to better health outcomes. Generalist care is invaluable for providing appropriate and person-centred care.
Against this background, we realise our mission by generating essential knowledge for future-proof, person-centred and appropriate primary and long-term care. We collaborate regionally and (inter)nationally to implement and evaluate care innovations, in which we pay special attention to the organization of care and health care technology.
