Baukje Stinesen has been a researcher at the Research group Communication in Digital Transition since 2012. She first studied Nutrition and Health and then Applied Communication Science, both at Wageningen University & Research. Her specialisation was in health communication and aspects of interaction in nutritional behaviour.
Baukje has carried out various projects within the Behaviour research line at the Research group Communication in Digital Transition. For example, she was commissioned by the Council for Social Development to study government policy aimed at influencing behaviour. She was also closely involved in the further development of the Campaign Strategy instrument (CASI 3.0) - which is a tool for the development and substantiation of campaigns aimed at behavioural change - of the Public Information and Communications Service (DPC) of the Ministry of General Affairs.
At the moment she is mainly active within the Conversation line of research. For her doctoral research ‘Naar een gedeeld begrip van de pijn’ (‘Towards a shared understanding of pain’) she is studying conversations between patients with chronic pain and health care practitioners. She is specifically interested in areas of sensitivity that arise when discussing social and psychological aspects of pain.
