COMPAS Surveys

Dear patients, your opinion matters!

Please share your ideas and opinion on what makes you feel (un)safe in healthcare as a patient and let patient safety bloom.

The results of the survey are used to evaluate patient safety in the healthcare system from the patient’s point of view. In order to close possible gaps and deal with weaknesses, we would like to develop training modules based on the results. 


Dear healthcare professionals, your opinion is needed!

Help us to find out what needs exist regarding patient safety and resilience in healthcare in the Euregio Meuse-Rhine. Tell us what topics you would like to learn more about by completing the survey below! 

Based on your input, the Universities of Aachen, Liège and Maastricht develop training modules to improve safe patient care and promote the health of (future) healthcare professionals.
