Data analysis: Exploring regional differences in healthcare
Regional differences illustrate that at times, care can fail to meet the needs of the public. In cooperation with the Science Media Center Germany (SMC), we identify anomalies in healthcare, and we research their potential causes on location.
Shared decision making: Facilitating a breakthrough for shared decision making
Just as physicians are experts in medical matters, patients are experts in their personal life circumstances, preferences and values. We advocate a culture of dialogue based on partnership, both in hospitals and in physicians’ practices.
Training physicians: Developing communication skills
Communication skills are still not sufficiently imparted in the study of medicine. Our goal is to anchor them in teaching and exams.
Choosing Wisely: International physicians’ initiative against medical overuse
Choosing Wisely is an initiative that wants to engage physicians and other clinicians in conversations with patients about the use of unnecessary tests and treatments. We are exploring the factors contributing to the initiative’s international success.
