Research program Patient-centered Care

Program coordination by Nivel expert Nanne Bos, PhD

Nanne BosTo improve patient care, it is crucial to know how patients themselves experience their healthcare treatment and what they think of the quality of that care. We conduct research into patients' experiences with healthcare treatment and their perspective on healthcare. With the knowledge we gain, we encourage care providers to work as patient-oriented as possible.
