In the context of healthcare, the feeling of 'fear' is very common and this fear manifests itself in various ways.
With this challenge we want to focus specifically on the fear that exists among patients that results into someone not seeking care when it is necessary.
For this we have a number of sub-questions:
Which forms of fear lead to care avoidance?
How does this fear affect a person? (consider the consequences and effect on a person's behavior)
How does this fear lead to care avoidance?
Are there ways to reduce or even prevent this anxiety?
We focus on healthy, average (young) adults to gain a good insight into what this fear is and what the consequences are.
Currently, there are many no-shows or people avoiding the hospital and the healthcare sector in general out of fear. As a result, these people do not receive good or not the correct care that is needed, with all possible consequences.
