Expert Statement

My expertise is on effective health communication, in particular for groups at risk such as older patients, people with limited health literacy and migrants. My research group studies (vulnerable) people’s communication needs, information processing and effects of theory- and evidence-based health interventions. I am very interested in the added value of new media strategies in health communication, such as eHealth. A major aim is to unravel the complicated dynamics between (digital) communication and cognitive, emotional, communication, behavioural and health outcomes of older adults.
