Autonomy and Participation for Persons with a Chronic Illness

The Research Centre for Autonomy and Participation for Persons with a Chronic Illness performs activities which help to ensure that chronically ill people or frail elderly can live the life they would like.

"Our research group is formed by scientific doers. Research is conducted precisely by the rules of the trade, but only if the professional practice needs it."

Our research topics are both interesting as relevant for healthcare professionals. Lecturers of Zuyd University of Applied Sciences conduct research together with healthcare professionals out of the workplace. Clients are also involved as much as possible. The research results are used immediately in the daily healthcare practice and healthcare education at Zuyd University: Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, Biometrics and Nursing.

Zuyd University of Applied Sciences
With approximately 40 bachelor and 10 master programmes, 13,200 students and 1,550 staff members, Zuyd University is one of the largest universities of applied sciences in the Netherlands.
