Care for Chronic Condition Logo

Why are we running this project?

Chronic conditions and multiple morbidities will remain a major challenge for the health care system in the foreseeable future and require suitable approaches in treatment, monitoring and health promotion. Physicians and health care specialists face increasing demands when caring for people with chronic conditions and multiple morbidities. To meet these complex demands continuous training and education, as well as innovative concepts are required. In this context, a professional exchange of opinions and experiences with colleagues from abroad can provide important ideas and findings.

What are our goals?

By expanding their horizons beyond national borders, the participants will experience new, patient-oriented and cross-occupational approaches in an authentic context and apply these to the health care sector when returning to Germany.

How does the project work?

The program offers participants the opportunity to take educational trips abroad focused on the topics of chronic conditions and multiple morbidities. The foundation funds visitations for periods of one to a maximum of eight weeks. During this time institutions provide educational and practical, as well as advanced training and education seminars and participation in conferences.

Who are the target groups?

The program aimes at professional actors and decision-makers from all professional groups who are involved in the care of people with chronic and multiple diseases.
