prof. dr. R.C. (Richard) Oude Voshaar



As clinician and head of the clinical training programme for residents in old age psychiatry, I am daily confronted with the lack of evidence for the treatment we offer to our older patients with psychiatric diseases. This confrontation has motivated me to devote my own research line to clinically relevant research of the common mental disorders, i.e. mood-, anxiety and somatoform disorders. Herein, my main interest lies in the interaction between somatic health and these common mental disorders.
