Francesco Kortekaas

I have been working as a Roman Catholic spiritual counselor at the Netherlands Cancer Institute since 2000. It is incredibly valuable to me to care for the soul as well as the body. I specialize in guidance during the process that patients and their loved ones are facing after a cancer diagnosis.

We aim to offer alleviation and clarity during treatment and aftercare through conversation or ritual befitting of the patient's views and beliefs. Together with the other care professionals, but within the bounds of confidentiality, we hope to contribute to the good care of our patients and their loved ones.
