Personal profile

Research interests

In cooperation with the Netherlands Comprehensive Cancer Organisation I am doing research on the long-term effects of cancer and its treatment on the psysical and psycosocial functioning of cancer survivors.

Besides quality of life, we investigate health status, disease-specific symptoms, fatigue, anxiety, depression, personality and health care use. Our studies have a longitudinal design in order to study changes over time. For instance, we want to know wheter certain side-effects diminish or occur at a later stage. At the moment, my research is focussed on side-effects of chemotherapy like chemotherapy-induced peripheral neuropathy. 

The data of my projects are freely available through the PROFILES registry (www.profilesregistry.nl)
