Katja Cardol, MSc
In November 2016 I started as a PhD-candidate within the project group ‘Identifying and treating psychological barriers for adopting a healthy lifestyle among patients with chronic kidney disease’. The research has the aim to develop an online screening tool to detect psychological barriers for adopting a healthy lifestyle, as well as an e-coach treatment module to eliminate those barriers among patients with chronic kidney disease.
