Personal profile

After clinical work experience as Radiotherapy technician (Oslo) as well as Physical therapist (Drachten), I graduated my master Clinical health science at the Utrecht university in 2007.
In 2013 I started a PhD trajectory besides my clinical work as a physical therapist. This was a cooperation between Nij Smellinghe Hospital and the University of Maastricht. This gave me the opportunity to combine my scientific research with all the dynamics in daily practice. Main focus of my scientific work and PhD thesis was a transition of perioperative care on the orthopaedic ward of Nij Smellinghe Hospital. After finishing my PhD in 2018 I worked 1,5 year in OLVG hospital in Amsterdam as project leader value based health care. Nowadays I'm program leader in perioperative health care innovations in Nij Smellinghe hospital and I started a professoriate on the same topic at the Hanze University in Groningen on November the 1st 2021.
