About Art Vreugdenhil
A medical oncologist and hematologist. Working at MMC, a regional teaching hospital, he spent most of his time on adverse events of systemic cancer treatment. With a strong focus on how to improve the quality of life during and after cancer. Can we inform patients to go for a certain approach as oncologists? Do we provide our patients with pure medical technical information after a multidisciplinary counselling (MDC)? Or do we integrate the patient’s preferences into such a MDC? And if we do so, does the patient really receive the best care? How do we define optimal medical treatment and integration of the patient’s preferences? Why do we not ask our patients to participate in an MDC?
About Warner Prevoo
After having worked as an interventional radiologist for 16 years, Warner Prevoo found himself on the other end of the spectrum: Warner, being slightly disturbed about a persistent cough, cycled to the hospital where he had a CT-scan performed. Never would he have dared to think that this scan would radically change his life. The verdict? Advanced lung cancer. He was no longer the doctor, but the patient. Now, as a practicing doctor, Warner has come to understand patients better than ever. The preconceived idea that doctors are immortal no longer holds. On the 13th of June Warner will talk about his personal experience as a patient, the challenges regarding doctor-patient understanding, and how this all relates to humanity.

Now, Susanne’s mission is to improve patients’ access to the right information. Information that might just save their lives. During TEDxEindhoven 2019 Salon, Susanne will provide us with more in-depth insights regarding her mission, and elaborate on how her high tech organizations, The Global Human Genome and Social Genomics, connect people to lifesaving information.
