Curriculum Vitae
Professor Mirjam A. G. Sprangers, earned a master’s degree cum laude (1984) in psychological methods; and a doctor of philosophy degree (1989) from the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. She has subsequently been a research psychologist at the Netherlands Cancer Institute. She is presently full professor and deputy chair of the Department of Medical Psychology, Academic Medical Center, University of Amsterdam. She coordinates a research line on quality of life that addresses the theoretical and methodological conundrums of patient-reported outcomes research. She is also Foreign Adjunct Professor of the Department of Medical Epidemiology and Biostatistics at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden. She was a research collaborator in the Department of Health Sciences Research at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, US. She has been and currently is member of various scientific and professional organizations. For example, she was member of the Scientific Council of Social Oncology of the Dutch Cancer Society and of the Populations and Behavioral Sciences Committee of Cancer Research, UK and served as President of the board of the International Society for Quality of Life Research. She is a long-standing member of the European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Study Group on Quality of Life. She is member of the Editorial Board of the Journal of Clinical Oncology and is an ad hoc reviewer for a range of other journals and granting agencies. She authored more than 275 papers published in peer-reviewed journals that address the methodological, theoretical and clinically applied aspects of quality-of-life research in a range of chronic diseases.  

Research programmes

Quality of Life

The overall goal of the research line "Quality of Life" is to enhance the well-being of somatically ill patients by studying their quality of life and to facilitate the correct inclusion of patient-reported outcomes in patient-based, clinical research. Patient-reported outcomes include quality of life, treatment adherence, patient preferences for treatment, and psychological variables, such as anxiety, depression, coping, attachment, and illness cognitions. This goal is achieved by conducting three types of studies. First, we conduct clinically applied research by supporting and participating in patient-based clinical studies that include patient-reported outcomes, initiated by clinical departments within and outside the AMC. Second, we conduct methodological research by developing and applying advanced statistical and qualitative methods to better examine changes in quality of life, taking shifts in patients’ perspectives over time (known as response shifts) into account. We also develop and validate questionnaire methods that assess treatment adherence. Third, theoretical research is aimed at delineating the sociodemographic, clinical (including genetic) and psychosocial factors that affect quality of life. We also develop and evaluate psychosocial interventions to improve quality of life. The insights gained from these studies allow for targeting health care to those who need it and provide important contributions to evidence-based medicine.
