The research department of the Careum School of Health examines current issues in nursing and care research.
Central topics are self-determined living with chronic illness, the promotion of health literacy and self-management in society, and person-centred care approaches.
Our focus: Health and health care
As part of the Kalaidos University of Applied Sciences, the research of the Careum School of Health examines current issues in nursing and healthcare research. We place health and healthcare across the lifespan at the centre of our teaching and research activities. In doing so, we specifically link health and social topics.
Our research focuses on strengthening person-centred approaches in health care. The aim is to specifically promote health and reduce the burden of disease and impairment on people and communities. Research and innovation activities are designed to offer support to address health-related challenges in the self-management of chronic diseases. Through research into everyday life technologies, we support self-empowerment and the competent management of health and illness. In this way, sustainable concepts for integrated and person-centred health and care services can be developed.
As a university, we conduct research that is relevant to practice and cooperate with organisations in the health and social sectors. Our scientific results are efficiently transferred into practice. The transfer and exchange of knowledge between research and teaching are paramount to us. Where possible, research foci are aligned with our educational programmes in order to integrate research results into teaching.
