Choices of hospitals in times of crisis; what does it do to staff?

Westra en Fleuren

Daan Westra, Bram Fleuren and their team are studying how hospitals are adapting to the COVID-19 pandemic and what consequences this has for the sustainable employability of their staff. In their personal blog on the ZonMw website they tell about their experiences within the study. The research is being conducted in collaboration with 5 hospitals in Limburg: Viecuri Venlo, Laurentius in Roermond, St. Jans Gasthuis Weert, Zuyderland in Geleen and Heerlen and the MUMC+ in Maastricht.
