Supporting primary care professionals
The primary care sector is under intense pressure. Due to ageing and the rising number of people with chronic diseases, care needs are growing and becoming more complex. Hospital admissions are becoming shorter. There are severe staff shortages. The role of primary care is changing rapidly. The Dr. Daniël De Coninck Fund supports primary care and welfare professionals with their development, grants for training and continuing education, and training courses. Through the support it provides the Fund is enhancing the expertise and know-how of primary care professionals. It brings them into contact with new practices and research that are relevant to their professional activities.
