KLIK is a method to give a clear overview of how patients (children an their parents/caretakers and (young) adults) are doing who are being or have been treated in a hospital. On the KLIK website you can fill out questionnaires about your daily life. The answers are converted into a clear KLIK PROfile. One of the practitioners will discuss the KLIK PROfile with you.
