Research program General Practice Care

Program coordination by Nivel expert Joke Korevaar, PhD

Nivel-Korevaar-2022'The general practitioner usually is the first contact for a patient and is also - often for a long time - the constant factor in the medical care for the patient.
We study the healthcare questions the GP is confronted with, the care that is provided by GPs and the referrals to secondary care.
More concrete: we monitor the requests for help to GP’s, the occurring diseases and their course, the need for care, the care provided and the quality of that care. In addition, we keep track of changes and patterns of infectious diseases that present themselves on a weekly basis.'
