Most of my current research projects are related to health economics & real-world drug outcomes (in particular cost-effectiveness and medication adherence) in respiratory diseases (asthma, COPD, TB, lung transplantation and lung cancer). Projects include research with smart inhalers, smart pill bottles and smart blisters.

Current projects:

  • MAECON: Medication Adherence Expertise Center Of the northern Netherlands (Founding Director) 
  • ENABLE: European Network to Advance Best Practices & Technology on Medication Adherence (ENABLE) - COST Action Network with over 30 countries to set up medication adherence expertise centers, review novel technologies, organize short-term fellowships & conferences (Action Chair; funding: European Commission)
  • ACCEPTANCE: Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of a smart inhaler self-management program to enhance medication adherence in patients with asthma (PhD student: Susanne van de Hei, MD; funding: AstraZeneca)
  • On TRACk: Blended intervention on incorporating TRaining, prepAration and Counseling to improve inhaler technique and medication adherence in patients with a chronic lung disease (PhD student: Roland te Paske, MSc; funding: ZonMw)
  • FRESH AIR: a €3 million Horizon 2020 project focusing on the implementation of effective interventions for chronic lung diseases in low and middle income countries Uganda, Kyrgyz Republic, Vietnam and Greece (PhD student: Aizhamal Tabyshova, MD; funding: European Commission)
  • TEVI: Optimising tacrolimus therapy in patients with a lung transplantation by development of electronic drug adherence monitoring tools and assessment of long-term adherence in human scalp hair (PhD student: Tanja Zijp, PharmD; funding: Chiesi)
  • Prominent: EU Marie Curie Cofund project on cost-effectiveness of personalized medicine (PhD student: Sajad Emamipour, MSc; funding: European Commission)
  • OUTER SPACE: Randomised trial in primary care to assess the effects a smart spacer supported educational program to enhance medication adherence (PhD student: Boudewijn Dierick, MD; funding: Trudell Medical)
  • Economic evaluations of novel hospital dispensed drugs for lung cancer and ILD (PhD student: Lotte Westerink, PharmD; funding: multisource)
  • Effectiveness and cost-effectiveness of pharmaceutical pulmonary care in Indonesia (PhD student: Deni Iskander, BPharm; funding: Indonesian government)
  • TAI Toolkit (TT): Development of a toolbox with evidence based, personalized adherence interventions following specific responses on the Test of Adherence to Inhalers (TAI)
