Interprofessional student nursing and treatment planning for patient-centered outpatient care of the future

You are here:

Interprofessionalism for the future care of older chronically ill people

The Idea


Demographic changes have an impact on the medical, nursing, and individual needs of older, chronically ill people who often also have complex problems to deal with. These needs affect the work in healthcare professions. Interdisciplinary teamwork is becoming increasingly important, which is why we focus on interprofessional student collaboration. With this, we offer you, the future generation in healthcare, the opportunity to work together in interdisciplinary teams on the development of individual treatment, care, and medication plans for people in nursing homes. What makes InterPlanung so special is the immediately noticeable effect: as current students, you will gain immediate knowledge through practical "teamwork". You will gain confidence in dealing with the various professional groups involved and with yourself through the shared mission in an unfamiliar work environment. 

Another advantage of this project is that as aspiring healthcare professionals, with your external perspective on the nursing, treatment, and medication plans of nursing home residents, you make a valuable contribution to improving the quality of care and patient safety. The collaboration between different fields of study can and should also help increase understanding for other professions and promote interprofessional cooperation for future careers. So far, students in their practical year of medicine (general medicine/internal medicine), clinical nursing science, as well as senior students in dentistry and pharmacy have had the opportunity to participate. And now, we also welcome master's students in clinical psychology and psychotherapy. All of you are nearing graduation and about to enter the professional world. Due to the high proportion of theoretically acquired knowledge among all participants in the interprofessional team, you will benefit greatly from participating in the InterPlanung project. Because every change in perspective is important. Your specific competencies acquired during your studies will be utilized to find comprehensive and effective solutions for older individuals and their individual needs. For optimal success and a high level of interprofessionalism, each interdisciplinary student team consists of one person from each field of study.

Student advisory board

We were delighted that the Student Advisory Board of the InterPlanung project met for the first time on 21 of September in 2023. 

It is an important instrument for us to monitor our project-related activities. We are doing this project for you, as students, and would like to make an initial contribution to the success of your interdisciplinary collaboration in your future professional life.

The Student Advisory Board provides the team with important advisory and multiplier activities. It discusses the accessibility of students, planning and realisation of the project, as well as making students' interests visible. 

So far, students from nursing and dentistry have been advising us

We welcome Emily Wagner, a nursing student, and Tamara-Ugur Lorenz, a dentistry student, to the advisory board. They are actively committed to the success of interprofessional student collaboration.

If you would also like to get involved. 

Please write to us.

We look forward to hearing from you.
