A. Witteveen (Annemieke)

About Me

BACKGROUND

Annemieke Witteveen (1987) finished her bachelor in Technical Medicine in 2012 at the
University of Twente. In 2013 she completed the master Health Sciences with the track
Health Services and Management. Her master thesis was titled "Effect of disease-free interval after breast cancer on survival”. After graduation, Annemieke started working as a PhD at the department of Health Technology and Services Research at the University of Twente. Annemieke is married and has two kids.

 

RESEARCH

Frequency and duration of follow-up for patients with breast cancer is still under discussion. Up to now patient are followed clinically for at least five year after their treatment. Still, most of the recurrences are detected by the women themselves in between follow-up visits and some of them are detected after the five years of clinical follow-up. Moreover, the follow-up is the same for all patients and not dependent on the individual risk of developing a breast cancer recurrence. The aim of this project is to tailor the breast cancer follow-up to individual needs.

TEACHING
Annemieke was involved in the bachelor courses Klinische Epidemiologie
(Gezondheidswetenschappen) and Epidemiologie, Statistiek en MTA (Technische
Geneeskunde), and the master course Clinical Efficacy and MTA (Health Sciences). Also,
Annemieke supervised several master students with their thesis. In 2016 and 2017 she was organizer and course leader of the University of Twente CuriousU summer school track The Future of Health Technology.
