( Source: MEDICA.de )

[08/07/2011] The number of heart failure disease has increased for years. Drugs and a change in lifestyle can help the affected person, but a cure is still not in sight. That’s why it is all the more important to research the origins of heart disease as well as develop suitable strategies for prevention. These are some of the objectives the German Center for Heart Failure has committed itself to. German Center for Heart Failure: "Research has to be interdisciplinary" - Read more

[22/06/2011] The cells of our body work within a three-dimensional environment. But under laboratory conditions, experiments are often still performed in Petri dishes, which provide a 2D environment. Cell cultivation: “You might describe it as gymnastics for cells“ - Read more

[08/06/2011] During pregnancy and childbirth, midwives are irreplaceable attachment figures for expectant mothers. That’s why it makes no sense that their position in society is disputed more and more, by paying them poorly and making their profession unnecessarily expensive through horrendous liability insurance premiums.

[09/05/2011] Someone who dies of brain death for instance due to an aneurysm, can save lives with his organs – if he, depending on state specifications, owns a organ donor card, has not excluded himself from organ donation or relatives express the probable wishes of the deceased. Yet there are still too few organ donors compared to potential organ recipients. Brain Death and Organ Donation: “There is still a significant need for research“ - Read more

Photo: Countryside [22/04/2011] Rural exodus is not just a well-known German problem, but happens all over the world. In the foreseeable future, this development will have a negative impact on the rural infrastructure and with it also on medical care. The fact remains: Many physicians prefer the city and a country atmosphere doesn’t do much for them.Country Doctor: “Sadly, humanity will fall by the wayside“ - Read more

Forensic Medicine: "We are not just dealing with dead bodies“

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/01/2011] It’s well-known that reality and fiction sometimes are much farther apart than you would think. Popular US crime drama series have long since shown us that and sketch a smart image of the job of forensic pathologists: they perform autopsies, identify and solve homicide cases like clockwork. Everyday life in a forensic medical Institute though is reflected to a lesser extent in this case.Forensic Medicine: "We are not just dealing with dead bodies“ - Read more

Nursing Degrees: “We do not view ourselves as competition, but rather as a complement to technical colleges“

[08/12/2010] What does great nursing care look like and what kind of skills do prospective nurses and elderly care nurses actually have to acquire, so patients feel completely comfortable later?

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/11/2010] Death is an unpopular subject that is often not talked about. Many people have an especially tough time to confront the issue of their own death while they are still in the midst of their life. Particularly when it comes to the question of whether to donate their organs, people are at a loss. Organ Donation: "There is a long waiting list for donated organs“ - Read more

( Source: MEDICA.de )

[22/10/2010] Just like in modern society, the image of physicians is also subject to different developments. The physician’s profession has to constantly meet new challenges. It is particularly difficult to reconcile role perceptions, which have increasingly become more differentiated due to the modern science- and health care system.

[08/10/2010] If you are referred to a hospital as a tumor patient, you will need complete treatment care and usually intensive therapy. Administrative proceedings and political requirements on the hospital end are added, all of which are not always easily carried out.Cancer Center: “We feel the economic pressure enormously“ - Read more
