About Me

Floor Sieverink graduated from the Master Communication Studies in August 2012. For her graduation paper, she studied the needs of patients with chronic gastrointestinal diseases regarding different support services for a web portal, and she examined which variables are predictors for these needs. The goal of this web portal is to increase the level of self-management and the involvement in the treatment of this patient group. The project was commissioned by the Medisch Spectrum Twente, a Dutch hospital. After her graduation, Floor worked here as a junior researcher at the research office of the department of pulmonary diseases.

In March 2013 Floor started working as a PhD student for the department Psychology, Health & Technology of the University of Twente.

The overall objective of her PhD project is to examine the added value of a web based interactive care platform (e-Vita) as an integral approach of disease management for patients with diabetes type 2, chronic heart failure or COPD.
