Primary and interdisciplinary care Antwerp (ELIZA)


  • My expertise covers qualitative and quantitative work in primary health care and medical education in various projects. The most important projects are: In the FAITH consortium (National Institute for Health and Disability Insurance (NIHDI)) we examine innovative and bottom up projects regarding chronic care in Belgium. In the SCUBY project (Horizon 2020) we study best avenues to scale up best evidence practice in Belgium, Slovenia and Cambodia. The Primary Care Academy (Chair of Fonds Dr. Daniël De Coninck) deals with new and innovative tools for patients, practitioners and teachers (goals oriented care, self management and interprofessional care) in Flanders. Capacity building for teaching and research are of majour importance. Two research chairs are supported by me: the Chair Public Mental Health (studying mental health care needs in Flanders and the Antwerp region in particular) and the Chair Care and the Natural Environment (with focus on the relation of the effects of green space and the natural world and build environment on health).


You can find here all of the projects that are recorded in the research database of UAntwerp under the name of the academic staff member that acts as a promoter, copromoter or grant holder (a.o. FWO). It concerns only those research projects and mandates that were acquired after an external or internal competition.
