/Highlights/ What Works in App-assisted Postsurgical Rehabilitation? Dr Pieter Coenen (Pt3) - Practitioner‘s Viewpoint
In 2009 Pieter Coenen obtained my MSc degree at the faculty of human movement sciences (VU University, Amsterdam) after which Pieter Coenen started his PhD program.
In his PhD project he studied the aetiology of musculoskeletal pain in workers, which ultimately resulted in his thesis ‘On the origin of back pain’. In the meantime, he successfully finalized his epidemiological education, granting him the official title of ‘Epidemiologist’.
He currently hold a post-doctoral research position at the department of Public and Occupational Health (EMGO Institute for Health and Care Research, VU University Medical Center), which he combine with and adjunct research position at Curtin University (Perth, Australia).
From 2014 to 2016, he has been working as post-doctoral researcher at Curtin University (Perth, Australia). In this period, he has expanded my knowledge on human physical (in)activity, prevention and management of musculoskeletal pain and epidemiological research methodologies. His research focus is on the promotion of healthy work environments, in particular from the perspective of physical (in)activity and workload. His research includes epidemiological studies on the health consequences of work-related biomechanical exposure and physical (in)activity at work, development of risk assessment tools for (occupational) safety and health, work-site interventions for healthy work environments and systematic reviews on health effects of work-related factors and interventions.
