Health care

Health and nursing care research focuses on the quality, resources and outcomes of and access to health care services and nursing care. The aim of researchers in this high-profile area is to make an interdisciplinary contribution towards improving health care provision. Members of the IPP, BIPS and SOCIUM conduct research on evidence-based practice, on healthcare provision and patient care under everyday conditions, as well as on education and training. They also use cross-sectional and longitudinal data to describe and explain provision and access to health care. At SOCIUM, healthcare systems researchers investigate the institutional structures of healthcare systems from a health economics and political perspective and in an international and comparative context.
