IQ-healthcare) from Radboud university medical center.
Furthermore, I am senior lecturer professional ethics at the CHE (Christian University of Applied Sciences). Until March 2013, I was research fellow in professional ethics and moral philosophy at the Ethics Institute of Utrecht University.
Apart from my work in higher education and research, I am also member of the Council for the Administration of Criminal Justice and Protection of Juveniles (RSJ).
studied both philosophy and theology (MA) and wrote a Ph.D. thesis on
meta-ethics (Frankena, theory of justification - relation
morality-religion). Since August 2005 I concentrate on professionalism
& ethics. Most of the time, professional ethics is linked to a specific profession. Yet, my aim is to develop more general, relevant professional-ethical insights by comparative moral philosophical analysis and research.
My most recent finished project concerned the ethical aspects of collaboration within community care teams (in Dutch: sociale wijkteams). Other earlier research projects focused on the ethics of interprofessional collobaration in youth care and on professional ethics concerning child abuse (see the tab 'professonal ethics' above for more information).
The coming years my focus will be on interprofessional ethics in the healthcare professions. Other themes of interest are the role of critical ethical reflection in the cultivation of professionalism and the relation between professionals ethics and professionals communication.
I am Dutch and live in The Netherlands.
