Health and Care Consulting

Certified Program
Expert Program

Consultancy skills have become increasingly important in nursing fields of activity, currently also due to the restructuring of nursing services. Advising and being informed is a right of the beneficiary in the health service and a right which is also granted to him by law (ABG, Hospitals Act, Health and Nursing Act, Medical Act).

This willingness to dialogue is increasingly called for, particularly as a result of the change in consciousness in recent decades. Values such as individualisation, personal responsibility, self-realisation, partnership and participation come to limelight. Nursing tries to counteract the process of rationalisation and differentiation in the health care system through patient-oriented care. In this context, the client/patient/resident is regarded as a partner in the process. He must be integrated, informed and advised.

Target Group

Qualified nurses with at least four years of professional experience in a specific field of health-care and nursing.
