Overview

Bianca studied psychology at Utrecht University (the Netherlands). During and after her study she worked at the Netherlands Institute for health services research (NIVEL). She worked mainly on research projects concerning patient-provider communication in hospital care, such as shared decision making in pediatric oncology and genetic counselling for breast cancer. Bianca completed her PhD at Tilburg University. Her PhD dissertation concerned patient involvement in establishing the quality of health care and improving patient-provider communication. Since starting work at the University of Exeter, she has worked on two projects: a Cancer Research UK funded project investigating guideline discordant diagnostic care for patients presenting with potential suspected cancer symptoms and a CanTest study titled ' Examining methodology to identify patterns of consulting in primary care for different groups of
patients before a diagnosis of cancer: a matched retrospective cohort study'. At the moment she is working on: 'SPOtting Cancer among Comorbidities (SPOCC) programme: Supporting clinical decision making in patients with symptoms of cancer and pre-existing conditions.'
