Ellen Engelhardt

Postdoctoral researcher


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 process.

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.
