In 2017 I obtained my PhD
from Leiden University. The focus of my thesis was the evaluation
of the accuracy of prediction models used to guide decision making
about adjuvant systemic treatment for breast cancer and assessment
of a) how often such prediction models are used to inform patients
about their prognosis during consultations, and b) whether and how
the use of such models impacts the (shared) decision making
As of April 2018 I have a
dual appointment at the NKI. Four days a week I work at the PSOE in
the Bleiker group where my focus is on long-term quality of life
and other psychosocial outcomes of the women diagnosed with ductal
carcinoma in situ (DCIS) eligible to take part in the LORD trial.
One day a week I work at C2 in the Schmidt group on the PRECISION
(PREventductal Carcinoma In Situ Intensive Overtreatment Now)
study. The focus of my work in the Schmidt group is development and
evaluation of prediction models to support decision making.
