All projects

The 29 research projects of NRP 74 are set to play an important role in making Swiss healthcare more effective and cost-efficient. The projects will focus on out-patient, in-patient and mobile care and their interfaces, and will attempt to find ways of improving healthcare for the chronically ill. They also aim to prevent unsuitable or unnecessary treatments - as well as discourage the avoidance of effective treatments - and to strengthen collaboration between different groups of professionals.
