Less time needed per person
The Netherlands Centre of Knowledge for Chronic Fatigue (NKCV) treats many people who live far away from the centre. In addition to face-to-face courses they therefore also offer online courses with assistance. About half of the people take online therapy.
‘Treatment via the internet takes up about 30 to 40% less of the therapists’ time compared to face-to-face treatment.’ - Hans Knoop, NKCV
