Dr. Marieke Weernink is a health scientist and has received her PhD from the University of Twente in June 2017. Her thesis was entitled: ‘Treatment Preferences in Parkinson’s Disease’. Marieke has a broad experience with preference elicitation techniques (TTO, DCE, BWS and MCDA) and their specific advantages and challenges. Furthermore, she has much experience in survey development, survey testing and patient participation in research. Currently, Marieke is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Twente (department Health Technology and Services Research), where she works on different research projects focused on the elicitation of patient or public preferences. For example: anticoagulants in atrial fibrillation, treatments for localized prostate cancer and quality of life of post-anoxic coma patients.
