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.

Strengthening the research infrastructure for scientific research into nursing and care

The goal of the programme “From Knowledge to Action II” is promoting the quality of nursing and care by carrying out research, developing and testing innovations, and implementation and guaranteeing of improvements and innovations in daily practice. In order to strengthen the research infrastructure for scientific research into nursing and care, no separate research projects will be renumerated in this programme, only lines of research. A line of research consists of a number of related projects.
