Nursing science

Nursing science addresses questions of nursing as a field of action and covers the whole human lifespan. Analyses include different levels – from individuals to families as well as social and political structures – and the entire chain of care services. In all three thematic areas, namely family-related, oncological and gerontological nursing, the research activities link the views of medicine and of social science on relevant social phenomena. Besides basic research and the development as well as the evaluation of interventions, the focus is on health services research and implementation research.
