Uni Clichés

So, there are a lot of situations we (almost) all counter as students when it comes to studying. They might be clichés, but that doesn’t mean that they’re not true.

Get to know this year's Healthy Committee

Ladies and gentleman, behold! The next Healthy is going to blow everyone’s mind, so be prepared. This year the Healthy has had a rebirth and you will see it like it has never been before. We, the new committee, hope to put the Healthy in the spotlight, that all students from the Bachelor and Masters are looking forward to read the new articles and that we can actually print out the Healthy for all of you to read.  We’re all looking forward to this year with all of its challenges and changes.

Is being a superhuman realistic?

Can humans be super all the time? How about stress? And should technology become important in our daily lives and in the medical world? These questions and more were answered during a masterclass about superhumans. The speakers were Kirsten Nelis, Jorieke van Noorloos, Emma Westermann, Hannes Leroy and Peter Joosten.

Policymakers vs. Doctors

In healthcare there are often disagreements between doctors and policymakers. For example: policymakers tend to care more for the costs of healthcare, while doctors find patients more important. To get more information on this subject, the Healthy committee interviewed Jeroen Postma (section Policy and Governance at ESHPM) and a company doctor (the company can not be named due to privacy reasons).

Less is more

Last monday the district nurses in the Netherlands decided to protest against the heavy workload they are experiencing. The workload is rising due to administrative tasks that are contributed in theorie work. Furthermore there is political talk about a budget decrease for district nurses.

Decision-making in healthcare

Lots of treatments and medicines are not financed by insurers, because they are too expensive compared to the health-effects they give. The minister of public health, welfare and sport decides whether a treatment is reimbursed by the basic health insurance. If not, the patient has to pay for the treatment by itself, which mostly is not possible because of the price.

How Edith steered the ship

Edith Schippers has been minister of public health, welfare and sport since 2010. Her term of office comes to an end this year. Hugo de Jonge will follow in her footsteps from 2018 onwards. Now our question is: did Schippers achieve her healthcare-related goals in the past eight years?

Last-minute changes concerning the deductible health insurance

In The Netherlands health care is arranged in a different way than in most countries. It has a solidaire system, where society pays for every citizen in need of care. As a citizen you pay a health premium and a deductible health insurance.

SHARE is the Faculty Association of the study ‘Health Policy and Management’ at the Erasmus University Rotterdam.
