Function
Director Institute for Medical Education
I am communication advisor at Dialysis Center Groningen and PhD-student at the UMCG. My PhD is about supporting patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and low health literacy (LHL). This research project Bridging the gap, is financed by the Social Sciences Call of the Dutch Kidney Foundation. I also performed a systematic review on associations of LHL in CKD, which formed the backbone of this call. I am also responsible for a research project which assesses the needs of LHL dialysis patients considering e-health and test the effect of an e-health prototype in this group. I developed education materials to promote knowledge regarding CKD, available treatment options and impact of treatment on daily life.

My research focuses on health literacy and communication to promote health, equity and participation of individuals and populations. Especially, those who are at risk for adverse outcomes are an important target group within my research. Examples of populations at risk are children born prematurely, individuals with low health literacy, individuals with multiple unhealthy behaviours and children or adolescents with mental health problems.
