The research, teaching, and educational activities carried out under the aegis of the Health Campus are driven by the issues our partners face in their day-to-day practice. These issues revolve around the following themes that are, in turn, interconnected.
The theme of Organising Differently focusses in part on the interface between the medical and social domain, repositioning of care (for example, the concept of ‘one-and-a-half-line care’), interprofessional cooperation, and alternative costing models. Examples of initiatives that arise from the theme include:
Evaluating Differently puts a focus on a broad and sustainable approach to health, one which considers not only disease and care expenses but also welfare, quality of life, satisfaction of care professionals, and the effects of these on reducing discrepancies in health outcomes. It also applies a number of research methodologies from various other disciplines, such as data science, as well as qualitative and short-cycle research methods. Examples of initiatives that have emerged from this theme include:

This includes, for example, interventions oriented towards lifestyle or environmental change, but also proactively approaching risk groups through the providers of primary care. Examples of initiatives that have emerged from this theme include:
