Childcare

How control plays a role in the interaction between the care professional and the family with a medical care-intensive child in order to achieve better outcomes.

Research areas

Child

Focus of the research are children with complex chronic conditions who need medical intensive care at home.

Family

Childcare is special because it concerns a child and their family. In fact, there is a triangular relationship: child, family and professional.

Care

In the care for children, growth and education also play a important role in addition to the physical, emotional and social challenges of life.

Control

Changing in Dutch healthcare is based on a range of ideas aimed at the ability of patients to take control over their own life. What do we mean by control in medical intensive care for children?

Organization

What does it require from organizations to arrange that control, in order to contribute to better outcomes for families with a medical care-intensive child?

Policy

How can government policy contribute to the implementation of control over their own life for families with a medical care-intensive child?
