Research area for Palliative Care and qualitative methods

With our research, we would like to contribute to understand the situation and care of people with chronic and life-limiting diseases and their families and to bring new knowledge into practice in the best possible way.

In cooperation with partners from practice / palliative and long-term care, research and development projects are carried out and the implementation of innovations in practice is accompanied and evaluated. We mainly work with qualitative research methods and advise research projects on this.

Areas of research

  • Palliative care from a nursing science perspective
  • Support of informal caregivers in palliative care
  • Consulting qualitative research projects
