Perspective of the patient

“Maria was the first to stand up from the perspective of the patients in a penetrating way against the enormous waste in care. She collected the waste from an operation she underwent and, as an artist, she has made a film of it that says it all in a few minutes… It has gone viral in healthcare and beyond, in the Netherlands and internationally.


She has held inspirational talks about this several times and has been asked to become an ambassador for the Green Deal Sustainable Care from a patient perspective.
