HEALTH SERVICES RESEARCH

Only a small part of effective therapies find their way into everyday care and benefit all affected patients. In order to overcome this lack of implementation, psychosomatic medicine will increasingly focus on investigating the suitability of care concepts for everyday use. Important questions in psychosomatic care research are: How can we reach patient groups that have so far been undersupplied, e.g. the elderly, refugees or physically and mentally comorbid patients? What must care concepts look like so that they are actually used in routine care? Can new media, e.g. telemedicine, or tailored services, e.g. evening clinic, be helpful in this context? How can specialists be supported in basic psychosomatic care or in shared decision making? Patient orientation, feasibility and consideration of costs are important targets here. In our projects we cooperate with general practicioners and other groups of specialists in the inpatient and outpatient sector.
