Postdoc Position in the Development Of Blended Personalized Care for People With Type 2 Diabetes

Postdoc Position in the Development Of Blended Personalized Care for People With Type 2 Diabetes Applications are ongoing for a Postdoctoral Position in the Development Of Blended Personalized Care for People With Type 2 Diabetes.

In the Netherlands, over 1 million people suffer from type 2 diabetes (T2D), and these numbers are still growing. Currently, diabetes care provided is reactive, a patient gets professional help when there are problems; labor-intensive, it is mainly organized face to face; and often relies on a ‘one size fits all’ approach whilst the origin, maintaining factors and the course of T2D are different for each patient. At the same time, people living with T2D visit their health care professionals (HCPs) at regular intervals and have the 24/7 task to keep their blood glucose values within a healthy range. Despite all their effort, many people with T2D do have frequent “out of range”-episodes, which significantly impacts their well-being and increases the risks of acute and long-term complications.

In this project, the candidate (at the University of Twente) will closely work together with a research team consisting of experts from ZGT and MST hospitals, Ancora Health (a digital health expert who has their own lifestyle intervention platform available), and patient representatives.
