ZonMw funds research into the quality of health care in the Netherlands

For instance by supporting nurses and care staff and by strengthening health care infrastructure. In doing so, we look at the different elements involved in health care, including the patient perspective, the various organisations involved, the care professional, and the social impact.

International Summit on integrated care

The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development (ZonMw) is co-host of the 18th International Conference on Integrated Care (ICIC) in Utrecht, 23-25th May 2018. Our aim is to promote quality and innovation of health research in order to make health care better and to keep it affordable. Therefor we invest in integrated care.

Sustainable quality improvement in nursing and caregiving

Model Sustainable quality improvement

Nurses and caregivers together form the largest group of healthcare professionals in the Netherlands. They work in all sectors of healthcare and form an essential link to quality prevention, care and support for citizens, patients and healthcare professionals. ZonMw supports nurses and caregivers by providing the knowledge needed to be able to carry out this pivotal role effectively.

Prevention of unhealthy weight gain and obesity during crucial phases throughout the lifespan (PREPHOBES)

Topics

This joint transnational call intends to fund dedicated, top-class transnational research consortia to provide insights in innovative strategies to prevent or reduce overweight and obesity in defined target populations based on certain life stages.

The research to be funded within this call should have a holistic, multi-disciplinary and solution orientated approach and will focus on one or more crucial phase(s) throughout the lifespan such as transition periods (for example from prenatal to postnatal phase/infancy, pre-school to school age, adolescence to early adulthood) or critical life events (for example moving, marriage, period in between pregnancies, diagnosis of a chronic disease, recovering from disease, retirement, migration). To increase the impact of the research and facilitate its later use in future policies on lifestyle interventions and public health, this call strongly encourages the active integration of stakeholders (e.g. patient and/or consumer organisations) or citizen science approaches. These partners should be engaged in the research process from conception of the study to dissemination and implementation.
