Wolff became chairman of the multidisciplinary Regional Pain Centre North East Brabant, organized the pain treatment activities into a professional organisation and started patient care quality projects such as “the Out Patient Clinic Carrousel” in order to prevent the chronification of pain syndromes in a multidisciplinary way. This project was financially supported by the Dutch Order of Medical Specialists.

Patient safety and Quality of care

 

Since 2016 Wolff is involved in the Dutch Health Deal Chronic Pain (HDCP), a

national initiative started to improve chronic pain patient care, to make it

Sensible, Economical and Excellent (Zinnig, Zuinig & Excellent), according to

the stepped care model. His attention is focused on improving patient care

pathways. He is member of the HDCP Scientific Advisory Counsil

and he participates in the steering group to elaborate HDCP for the Northern

 part of the Netherlands.

working groups for guideline development to improve safety and efficacy of the

perioperatieve process in the Dutch hospitals. He also became the chairman

committee Quality of the Dutch Society of Anaesthesiology (NVA). In 2010 he

started a cooperation with IQHealthcare, specialized in implementation

science, to study the effects on adherence and patient outcomes of tailored

implementation strategies of these Dutch guidelines. This was the basis for a

research group that started at that time: Evidence Based Perioperative Patient

Safety. At this moment 3 PhD students are elaborating research on

implementation activities and instruments to identify and improve

perioperatieve safety. Wolff got active in various organizations and hospital

committees that are involved in patient safety and quality of care. As a patient

safety officer in the RadboudUMC he developed and lead a program to

Science

 

In February of 2016 Wolff started as professor in Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine at the University and UMC Groningen. He initiated research on the understanding, prevention and treatment of sensitization and somatosensory nervous system conduction patterns of chronic pain, with specific attention for precision diagnosis via the nervous system and central sensitization. Main research populations are patients with spinal and visceral related pain. Innovation and quality of chronic pain related patient care paths is another topic of interest. Wolff collaborates within the UMCG with the Spine Centre, the Pelvic Pain Centre and Pain Rehabilitation and externally in networks on chronic pain.

 

In his resident time Wolff participated in research addressing the effect of epidural local anaesthetic agents, including Ropivacaine, a new drug at that time. From 1992-1997 Wolff participated in the anaesthesiology animal laboratory to elaborate the effect of short acting local anaesthestic agents in the white Wistar rat. Subsquently he started working for the Pain Acknowledge Center Nijmegen where he was involved in various research and quality projects such as the development of the Dutch Pain Classification, the development of Epiduroscopy and in organizing scientific symposia and congresses.

He performed and published various studies on “Segmental Nerve Root Blocks in Patients with Chronic Radiating Low Back Pain: Bringing Light to the Darkness?” and finished his PhD thesis on this subject in 2006. The Dutch Society of Anaesthesiologists awarded this thesis as the best one for 2006-2007. Thereafter, from 2006 to 2008, he followed prof. dr Ben Crul as head of the Pain Acknowledge Center Nijmegen, supervising scientific and educational projects.

In 2008 he became leader of a validation project for clinical hands on instruments developed to detect neuropathy. This project resulted and will result in various publications based on studies executed by PhD student Hans Timmerman, who will finalize this project in 2016.

Because of his activities in the field of patient safety and quality of care, Wolff also became the leader of a research group studying themes related to “Evidence Based Perioperative Patient Safety”. Main topics are the implementation effects of the national guidelines concerning the Pre-, Per- and Postoperative trajectory and implementation strategies. At this moment three PhD students are active in this research area. Another main topic is studying instruments to identify unsafety in the perioperative patient care.

In order to finance research projects, Wolff got financial support from the Order of Medical Specialists in F50.000 in 1997; €150.000 from the Dali consortium in 2008 to validate the PainDetect as an instrument to identify neuropathy in clinical circumstances; Wolff got €483.000 from ZonMw for a multi centre study on implementation strategies for the Dutch Peri-operative safety guidelines and €64.164,78 from ZonMw for a single centre study on the implementation of the Dutch Peri-operative safety guidelines specifically focused on the impact of ethnic minorities.
