Some key-ideas on scientific research:

  • Scientific ressearch does not need to be complex. It should simply be well founded according to rules of science.
  • We welcome collaboration with new investigators. These are encouraged to make use of available data on Buurtzorg starting from 2008.
  • One of our goals is that others become knowledgeable Buurtzorg experts in their own areas of interest. Established relationships with these experts should then result in ongoing collaboration to improve community and home health care practice.
  • Partners should publish results in the form of researchreports and (scientific) articles.
  • Publications should not only fit with authors’ guidelines. They should fit with the goal of building coherent research; publish what matters, where it matters.

To realise these ideas, investigators from a wide range of institutions are welcome, especially those with base in a suitable university faculty or department.
