Prevention in primary care

In the context of a more integrated healthcare landscape and the closer involvement of primary care in preventive health policy , VIVEL carries out a number of tasks with regard to prevention, in which VIVEL will always reflect from the perspective of primary care.

Prevention in primary care

Prevention is essential for promoting health and well-being, reducing the demand for care, and improving the job satisfaction of healthcare professionals. A sustainable preventive health policy is then an integral part of high-quality primary care.

VIVEL zet als netwerkorganisatie in op een meer geïntegreerd zorglandschap en het nauwer betrekken van de eerstelijnszorg in het preventief gezondheidsbeleid.

Prevention is therefore an active theme within VIVEL and in the primary care zones.

Exercise by referral and HALT2Diabetes

For example, VIVEL, together with the Flemish Institute for Healthy Living, the Diabetes League, the Flemish Logos and representatives from various professional groups, is working on the promotion of preventive support through Bewegen Op Referral and HALT2Diabetes. This was done, among other things, through:

  • The development of an Interprofessional Training (IPT) with an e-learning and workshop.
  • Promoting these pathways through factsheets for various professional groups in primary care.

Both will be started up and distributed in 2024.
