About Marnik 

I am a Belgian Psychologist with a clinical background. I wrote my thesis on quality of life for patients with cystic fibrosis. This triggered my interest in the medical side of psychology. I worked with people and adolescents with drug addiction. Here we tried to increase patients’ quality of life despite their difficulties in life.

My Project: Psychosocial risk screening across the trajectory of childhood cancer treatment

The PAT is a questionnaire that is conducted worldwide to measure familial psychosocial risk in pediatric health. The level of risk can be an indicator for treatment recommendations. We will try to implement the PAT in a more efficient way and investigate how we can use this data to provide better care for the patients and their parents.
