Three NWO Veni's for researchers at Tilburg University on prenatal anxiety on mother-infant neural synchronity (Marion van den Heuvel, TSB), healthier food intake (Frans Folkvord, TSHD), and data analysis to determine the cause of genetic disorders (Marleen Balvert, TiSEM).
Are we well prepared for possible cross-border outbreaks of resistant bacteria?
The spread of resistant bacteria may pose a serious threat to public health within and between countries. It is vital that potential outbreaks are responded to quickly and effectively in cross-border cooperation and through the integration of networks of healthcare institutions and professionals. A test, in which Dutch and German healthcare professionals were questioned on an outbreak scenario, shows that there is a good basis for cooperation, but that there is still room for improvement in terms of cross-border coordination, working relationships and trust in the networks.
