Face to face data collection among participants with intellectual disabilities

In order to collect data on the experiences of people with intellectual disabilities, the Netherlands Institute for Healthcare Research set up the Panel Together Living in 2006. This Panel consists of people with mild or moderate intellectual disabilities and their immediate family members. In cooperation with GfK, we ensure that people with intellectual disabilities are interviewed to find out how people with disabilities experience their participation in society, what bottlenecks they encounter and what specific support needs they have. With this research, changes and developments can be visualized.

Over a period of more than 8 weeks, all respondents are invited to participate in the interview. Our interviewers then make their own appointment for the interview. This can be done either directly with the respondent or through the supervisor or legal representative. The research concerns a specific target group and this is therefore also taken into account in the method of communication.

The research results are compiled anonymously in a report. This report is published every four years and will be presented to the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport in 2022. In addition, annual partial reports are published. The insights into the wishes and needs of people with intellectual disabilities form important input for policies aimed at further integration into society of this target group. Publications are distributed to interest groups, general practitioners, institutions, municipalities and other social organizations. In addition, the research results are fed back to the panel members themselves via a newsletter (tailored to the panel members).

If you are interested in the study, you can find more information on the Nivel website. All Nivel research results are publicly available and can be downloaded free of charge.
