Head Primary care Specialty Training Department

I am general practitioner since 1994. I combine my work in general practice with academic tasks. After being a program director for GP trainees, I gradually took more interest in research and management. My research interests are in the field of chronic kidney disease management in primary care and educational research. The interface between primary and secondary has my special interest. Driven by the idea of seamless care, I developed a web based consultation tool between primary care and nephrology. It aims to help general practitioners to provide optimal care in primary care and to adequately refer when necessary.
My further research interests are health innovation at the primary-secondary care interface, medication safety and interprofessional education.
I am Head of the Primary care specialty training department of Radboud university medical centre. With a staff of 80 persons we provide specialty training for general practice, elderly care, occupational health and addiction medicine for over 400 trainees.
I am representative for the Netherlands in EURACT (European Academy for teachers in family medicine). One day a week I work in an academic health centre where general practitioners, nurses, midwives, paramedics, psychologists and pharmacists work closely together.
