Liesbeth van Vliet receives 'For Women in Science'-award for placebo and communication research
Psychologist Van Vliet investigates which
communication patients and their loved ones need
when they are confronted with serious, often
incurable, diseases. Van Vliet looks at what
communication could help them at those moments,
and what communication could harm. These patients,
in addition to good medical care, also need good
information and emotional support. The main theme
of Van Vliet's research is to better
understand the power of communication at times
when this is the most important thing.
During a festive ceremony in the Royal Holland Society of Sciences (KHMW), Liesbeth van Vliet received one of the two Dutch For Women In Science grants for Life Sciences worth 25,000 euros for its contribution to science. The Netherlands Institute for Advanced Study (NIAS) and the National Network of Female Professors (LNVH) are the Dutch partners with which L'Oréal and UNESCO work together.
