About Maria van den Muijsenbergh

Working for many years as a General Practitioner for vulnerable groups like refugees and other migrants, low literate and homeless patients, Maria van den Muijsenbergh developed an interest in the health effects of socio-economic position and migration. She studies and teaches how personcentred integrated Primary Care can help to reduce these health disparities.

Person centred integrated care takes into account the whole personal story, skills, circumstances and preferences of the patient, leading to communication and shared decision making tailored to this person’s skills and preference. It is not restricted to the biomedical  domain, but also involves social welfare and environmental issues like finances and housing.

Areas of research include community oriented primary care on prevention of and care in case of chronic conditions like cardiovascular diseases; palliative care; migrant care.

She works in close collaboration with various international research institutions in the field of equity, primary care, health literacy and migrant care, and with Pharos the Dutch dentre of expertise on health disparities that has initiated this professorate.
