Research: Currently, I am doing my master Management, Policy-Analysis and Entrepreneurship in Health and Life science at the VU. For my master program, I am working as a research intern at the PhD project of Minh Hao Nguyen. In this project we investigate in the Academic Medical Center (AMC) of Amsterdam how online information should be presented to older cancer patients. The aim of this project is to establish theory- and evidence-based guidelines for optimal information provision to older cancer patients. Within this PhD project I conduct a study about the evaluation of  the association between website usage and website satisfaction on patient participation during oncological consultations.
