At the Blezinger symposium in Luzern Dr. Birgit Dietz gave a lecture on: "What is really needed in care and nursing homes? What are the needs of residents, patients, care takers and dependants?" This took to a productive discussion about possibilities to improve the interfaces between inpatient and outpatient care and options for changing those procedures.
We further discussed the potential possibilities of shared community houses in an endeavour to address the current shortage of skilled workers and the increasing age of care home residents.
Great exchange and mutual learning at this conference!
