My name is Etel Veringa, and I am a physician from the Netherlands who became passionate about Patient Centered Care. My husband Louis Ter Meer, a program and change manager, who used to work for governmental institutions in the Netherlands realizing cultural change while implementing large and complicated programs, shares my passion for Patient Centered Care. Together we visited many hospitals who practiced Patient Centered Care.

We are currently living in Chile and spreading the word of Patient Centered Care in hospitals and clinics in this beautiful country, with the intention to improve the situation of both patients, staff and physicians in Latin America.
