EMGO+ research includes qualitative and quantitative approaches, observational cohort and intervention studies and is always focused on the promotion of evidence-based medical practice. Many studies are either executed within large population-based cohorts or in public health and extramural medical practice settings, such as general practices, specialized mental health care organizations, residential homes for the elderly, nursing homes, schools, worksites and occupational health care settings. In addition, a variety of intramural studies are conducted on organization, safety, effectiveness and quality of care in the hospital.
