Research program Nursing Care and Elderly Care
How do nurses experience their work? We ask them what it takes to optimize their work and working conditions in order to improve in order to improve nursery care and make it more sustainable.
Furthermore we focus on the care for the elderly. In an ageing society with growing shortages of care professionals, choices are inevitable; it is then important to have good insight into what really contributes to the quality of life. We focuson the quality of elderly care from the perspective of the elderly themselves, that of informal care givers and that of the care professionals involved.
Points of focus 2022–2024
- Investigating the quality of end-of-life care and the quality of care and support for people with dementia and (other) elderly people. In an ageing society with growing shortages of care professionals, choices are inevitable; it is then important to have good insight into what really contributes to the quality of life.
- Mapping the needs and wishes of nurses; we look at how nurses can be properly equipped to meet the care and support needs of patients and informal care givers.
