Clinical practice guidelines provide evidence and recommendations on optimal patient care. They assume an ‘average patient’ without special characteristics.  In clinical practice, however, each patient is unique because of its history, social context and individual needs and preferences.The research and education within this chair focuses on personal aspects and outcomes of healthcare and, in particular, how guidelines could promote personalized care in practice.

The chair fits within the ambition of the Dutch College of General Practitioners to contribute to knowledge and innovation in the field of guideline development in collaboration with the university departments of family medicine and primary care research institutes.
