Jos de Blok, Buurtzorg founder and 2014 RSA Albert Medal Laureate Named the most influential health care director in Holland in 2011, Jos de Blok has transformed home-based health care in Holland by focusing on what nurses should do, not how nurses should do it. Jos has a long history in community nursing, both delivering care and in management positions. From 2000 to 2003 he played an active role in the National Association of District Nurses (LVW), spearheading a movement by community health nurses to take responsibility for their own professional development and to create a clearer vision for the role of nurses in primary care. Established in 2007 with one team of four nurses, Buurtzorg currently supports more than 4,700 nurses in 440 teams serving more than 60,000 patients a year. In 2011 Buurtzorg was named the best employer in Holland.
