Regulating care

In this line of work, we study the governance of healthcare proper; that is, the role of policy-makers, managers, and supervisors in healthcare and their relations with healthcare practice and organizations as well as processes of patient participation. We recognize that healthcare is layered, meaning that healthcare practice, management and policy interact and are mutually constitutive. Given the many interdependencies between actors, we are interested in how regulation comes about and to what effect as well as how such regulatory practices can be democratized. Our strategic partnership with the Healthcare Inspectorate is part of this line of work and much work is done in relation to supervision of healthcare.
