Health Care Transition Research Group

The Health Care Transition Research Group research group addresses the broad range of transitional care issues, by conducting research within three themes: 

  • Care for transition:
    Research on persons who are transitioning from one life phase, medical condition, or social role to another.
  • Transition of care:
    Research on patients in whom care is transferred from one setting to another.
  • Care in transition:
    Research on healthcare delivery models that are in transition, to be adapted for future needs of patients and populations.

The target populations are persons with long term illness and their significant others; healthcare professionals; and policy makers.

Aims of the Health Care Transition Research Group research group
The Health Care Transition Research Group research group aims to generate new knowledge about transitional care aspects; to develop interventions to improve transitional care; and to evaluate the impact and effectiveness of such interventions. The scope of research activities is broad, and comprises for instance explorative studies; instrument development; intervention mapping; and effectiveness research, amongst others.
