Professor Vernooij Dassen's area of expertise is the development of psychosocial interventions and the evaluation of their effects on the quality of life of vulnerable elderly patients and their caregivers. Research takes place both inside and outside the nursing home. Within the nursing home, a lot of attention is being paid to best practices.

The implementation of effective interventions and the development and evaluation of quality indicators are other major areas of expertise. Care for vulnerable elderly patients with serious chronic diseases is highly complex and requires integrated, multi-professional collaboration. Research of integrated care is also part of the research domain. The clinical specializations are dementia and palliative care.
