Pieterbas Lalleman PhD (1975), nurse, obtained his doctorate in November 2017 with a dissertation entitled ‘Leadership as Blended Care: on daily work of nurse middle managers in hospitals’, which describes the clinical leadership of nurse managers in Dutch and American hospitals.
Lalleman is working on setting up a line of research on clinical nursing leadership at the front line of care (hospital, long-term care and mental health care). Within this line of research, attention is paid to managerial issues of nursing advisory boards and nursing staffing agreements, with special attention to the role of Supervisory Boards and (nursing) clinical leadership. The focus is on developmental issues of clinical nursing leadership aimed at improving patient care (PREMS / PROMS).
In addition to his work for HU, Lalleman is involved as a thesis supervisor in the master's degree in Clinical Health Sciences at Utrecht University and the Erasmus School of Healthcare Management and Policy at Erasmus University Rotterdam. Lalleman also works as a course coordinator for the Leadership in Healthcare elective course of the Clinical Health Sciences degree programme at Utrecht University, and for a summer school course of the same name for Elevate and the Utrecht Summer School. In addition to these academic activities, Lalleman works part-time as a nurse for Buurtzorg.
