Healthy Ageing

Jaap Koot is member of the European Innovation Partnership on Active and Healthy Ageing (EIP-AHA), an initiative by the EU to bring together knowledge and experience in healthy ageing.  Jaap Koot is involved in the healthy aging programme in the University Medical Center in Groningen (UMCG), working on health literacy for the ageing population.

Scenario study

In 2007 Marij Vulto en Jaap Koot performed a scenario study for the policy research organisation STG/HMF into medical care for ageing people in the future . The scenarios distinguished between public and private orientation of healthcare services and between disease orientation and health orientation. The direction in which healthcare will develop has major impact on numbers and types of personnel needed. The report served as basis for personnel planning in Dutch healthcare for the coming 15 years. The model developed in that study is still used as reference for trend analysis.
