Are you a care or helping professional, or an informal caregiver? Participate in the survey “POWER TO CARE”. This survey studies your well-being and your support needs.

Complete the survey

Are you 18 or older and living in Belgium? Then complete our survey before the 15th of December 2020. This will only take 15 minutes of your time and your participation really makes a difference.

The questionnaire is also available in Dutch, French and German.

Why this survey?

Today, it is clear that the pressure on care professionals, helping professionals and informal caregivers is high. That is why they deserve all our support in order to have and maintain the necessary strength. Only with strength can they provide care. Strength to provide the care that their patients, residents and family members deserve every day. Strength to care for each other among colleagues or peers.

The national survey “POWER TO CARE provides objective information about the well-being of care professionals, helping professionals and informal caregivers, as well as their need for support. Policymakers and managers can use this information to take targeted actions to improve well-being.

The P²C survey is an initiative of Sciensano and KU Leuven with Zorgnet-Icuro, Steunpunt Geestelijke Gezondheid/Te gek!?, Santhea, Unessa and GIBBIS as their partners.
