Research

In my research unit Organisation and Management in Healthcare I'm involved on healthcare legislation and regulations, on the intended and unintended effects of laws and on monitoring of the implementation of these laws. My research focusses on the impact of legislation and oversight in healthcare. My expertise is on the methodology of evaluation of legislation.

Acting when something went wrong
Within the domain of legislation and oversight I have one special interest topic. This is how professionals and health care organisations act when something went wrong, and on the impact of these actions on patients and professionals. With other researchers I participate in a learning-network of Dutch hospital that want to improve on how they act when something went wrong. We also monitor the impact on patients of changes in legislation regarding complaints handling.
