The programme will through research and innovation enhances the quality, competency and efficiency in the health, care and welfare services and ensure good patient and user pathways based on the users’ needs.
The four secondary objectives will contribute to:
- enhance the quality and international orientation of health, care and welfare services research
- strengthen the foundation for knowledge-based education and professional practice, both for the individual sector and across sectors, by conducting practice-based, practice-oriented services research, especially in under-researched areas
- generate new knowledge that benefits users/patients and the services and that creates synergies and greater coherence in research and innovation for the health, care and welfare services.
- establish new arenas of cooperation by bringing together researchers, service providers and users from various service areas across the health and welfare sector.
