Personal profile


PhD project (2017 - today) about dealing with different perspectives in collaborations in healthcare services for older patients in primary and secondary care. Contemporary public policy shows a shift towards more horizontal decising making among a wide variety of stakeholders in the management of health. I study how older patients with frail health and/or chronic diseases, healthcare practitioners, insurers, managers and policy makers pursue to govern collaborative healthcare service organization and provision, given their differences in interests, preferences, skills and positions. To this end, I use a qualitative, actor-level research approach.

Supervision: dr. Duco Bannink, dr. Sierk Ybema, prof. Hein van Hout & dr. Fleur Thomese.
