Innovatively shaping the healthcare system.

On the one hand, technical and medical advances make ever better treatment successes possible, while on the other hand new diseases of civilisation and demographic developments are placing a burden on the system. The need for highly professional health care personnel is increasing visibly - as are the demands on the management level. The Master's degree program "Health Management" is tailored to meet these requirements. 

Healthy Start to Studies

The orientation of the course of studies towards health promotion already begins with the "Healthy Start to Studies", which enables students to start their studies in a stress-free, conscious manner at the beginning of their training. Scientifically sound and application-oriented specialist knowledge is also imparted right from the start: The major topic of management is complemented by law and entrepreneurial thinking and acting in the health sector. Students deal with the health sciences as well as with business administration in the health sector. Special areas of business such as innovation management, entrepreneurship, quality management, risk management, human resources management and leadership are given broad scope in the curriculum.

On the practical side of the course, practice-oriented research projects take place, which enable an active engagement with the Austrian health care system. Students work not only with non-profit organisations, but also with public social and health institutions in order to obtain the most comprehensive picture of the Austrian health care landscape. The different professions from which the students come further strengthen this picture. The course of study enables those in the professions to expand their skills - and to reflect on their everyday working life. Especially with regard to ethical and legal aspects in health care, a wide range of new perspectives are opened up.

New perspectives are also made possible by the close networking with internationally established partner universities of the degree program. The Double Degree Program, for example, was created in this way: At the partner university in Finland, Jyväskylä University of Applied Sciences, students can also earn a Master of Health Care degree. The program provides for international spring and summer schools. In addition, course contents are developed in online modules and practice weeks.

Double Degree Program

In cooperation with the Finnish University of Applied Sciences Jyväskylä (JAMK), the master's programs "Health Management" and "Social Work: Developing and Shaping" offer an international double degree program (DDP).

The DDP is an initiative of the study programs with the aim of strengthening the European dimension in studies and thus opening up international career opportunities for students. It also enables students to make international contacts and take a broader perspective on the health care system.

The program comprises 30 ECTS. These are integrated into the curricula of the Master's programs and include two international study weeks (Summer School in Jyväskylä and Spring School at the Carinthia University of Applied Sciences), a specific offer of online courses, the Master's thesis, and optionally one or two practice weeks.

All segments of the program are held in English.

After successful completion of the DDP, students acquire the

Curriculum

Profile

The Master's degree program "Health Management" trains executives in the health care sector and is dedicated to the teaching and deepening of leadership and management skills of practitioners in the profession. The extra-occupational study program addresses the special growth dynamics in the health sector and deals in depth with the topics of management, law and business administration in the health sector.

Students learn to grasp and help shape the dimensions of quality of care - and are equipped with scientific skills to raise their daily professional work to a highly professional level. With these competences, graduates of the program have a wide range of career paths open to them - from management functions in public and private health care institutions to consulting positions in health insurance companies or interest groups. 

What students should bring to their studies:

  • Interest in business management issues and approaches in the health sector;
  • Enthusiasm for the analysis and discussion of health economic interrelationships as well as for questions concerning the design and financing of health systems nationally and internationally;
  • Interest in taking on management tasks in the health care sector such as communication and conflict management, project and personnel management, quality and innovation management;
  • Curiosity about the topics of health sciences and public health - with all their current and future challenges.
  • Pleasure in scientific work and writing in German and English;
  • Interest in the further development of social-communicative skills, also in an intercultural context;
  • Enjoyment of team-oriented and self-organised work in small groups in the context of application projects, workshops, planning and role-plays, research-based learning, etc.

A prerequisite for the Master's degree program in "Health Management" is a relevant Bachelor's or diploma degree. In this case, relevant to the subject means, for example, a degree in economics or health science.

After successful completion of their studies, graduates have the following skills and knowledge:

  • They understand complex interrelationships and make career-related decisions taking into account the business management requirements of the health care sector.
  • They are proficient in essential aspects of financing and accounting, personnel and corporate management as well as human resource management.
  • They improve the motivation and performance of their employees.
  • They solve conflict situations by professional means.
  • They are able to assess future developments, opportunities and risks in the healthcare system.
  • They have sound knowledge of social security law and other legal matters.
  • They can understand, classify and evaluate current studies and research results.
  • They are able to design, carry out and communicate studies and projects themselves and to prepare the necessary research and funding applications.
  • You will be prepared for management functions and learn the necessary social skills.

Gesundheitsförderung – Lebensphase Alter

Health Literacy als Basis-Kompetenz (in) der Gesundheitsgesellschaft

Literacy ist ein aktuell viel diskutiertes Konzept, mit dem beansprucht wird, basale Lebenskompetenzen in hochzivilisierten, globalisierten Wissensgesellschaften auf den Begriff zu bringen. Zur flexiblen, aktiven und produktiven Bewältigung gegenwärtiger Alltagsanforderungen – so eine verbreitete Überzeugung – bedarf es mittlerweile eines ganzen Arsenals entsprechender Kompetenzen. Um nur eine kleine Auswahl aufzuführen: Information Literacy, Media Literacy, Computer Literacy, Digital Literacy, Technology Literacy, Visual Literacy, Cultural Literacy, Dramatic Literacy, und vor allem auch Health Literacy.

Das Grundkonzept besticht auf den ersten Blick durch scheinbar leichte Verständlichkeit und eindeutige Begriffsbestimmung: Wer über Literacy im ursprünglichen Sinn verfügt, besitzt die Kompetenz, Geschriebenes lesen zu können, dadurch schriftliche Materialen zur Informationsgewinnung nutzen und an schriftgestützten gesellschaftlichen Vorgängen teilnehmen zu können. Auf den zweiten Blick weicht diese Einfachheit und Eindeutigkeit jedoch einer hohen Komplexität und einer nahezu unüberschaubaren Breite von Definition–en sowie Anwendungen.

Analog wird auch der Begriff Health Literacy in gesundheitsbezogenen Kontexten mehr oder weniger breit verwendet und diskutiert. Im deutschsprachigen Raum wird er durch Termini wie Gesundheitsalphabetisierung, Gesundheitsbildung, Gesundheitsmündigkeit oder Gesundheitskompetenz ersetzt. Vor dem Hintergrund der WHO-Definition, die Health Literacy als "the degree to which people are able to access, understand, appraise and communicate information to engage with the demands of various health contexts to promote and maintain good health across the life course" versteht, wächst die Anzahl von Ansätzen zur Definition, Messung und Umsetzung des Konzepts.

Dies alles verweist auf die Komplexität und die Vielschichtigkeit von Health Literacy, ebenso auf das Potential, aber auch die Risiken, die sich im Zusammenhang mit diesem schillernden Begriff ergeben. Dem haben wir mit der Tagung Raum gegeben: einen Raum, in dem die verschiedenen Bedeutungen, Möglichkeiten und Ziele von Health Literacy in unterschiedlichen Bereichen beleuchtet und dabei auch die spezifisch soziologischen Perspektiven hervorgehoben wurden. Dabei sind eigene Überlegungen, Strategien und Maßnahmen vorgestellt, diskutiert, rückgespiegelt und damit vertieft worden.

Eingeladen wurde zur Präsentation von theoretischen, empirischen und/oder praxisbezogenen Arbeiten, sei dies in Form eines Vortrags oder eines Posters. Mögliche Themenbereiche waren:

Health Literacy im Kontext von:

  • theoretischen, methodischen und praktischen Zugängen
  • Individuellen, kulturellen, sozialen und politischen Dimensionen
  • Forschung, Projektierung und Analysen

Health Literacy im inhaltlichen Bezug zu:

  • Gesundheitserziehung, -bildung und -förderung
  • Empowerment, partizipativer Gesundheitsforschung und -förderung
  • Lebenslage, -lauf und -bewältigung
  • Biomedikalisierung, Genetifizierung und Enhancement
  • E-Health, E-patient und Digital Divide
  • Aus-, Fort- und Weiterbildung von Gesundheitsberufen

Health Literacy im Spannungsfeld von:

  • Verhalten und Verhältnissen
  • Sozialer und gesundheitlicher Ungleichheit
  • Solidarität und Selbstsorge
  • Recht auf Wissen und Nichtwissen
  • Informierte Entscheidung und ethische Dilemmata
  • Formellen und informellen Lern- und Bildungsprozessen

sowie weitere Stand- und Brennpunkte aktueller Health-Literacy-Debatten wie auch eines „transliteraten“ Mix aus obengenannten Bezugspunkten.

EARLY LIFES FAMILY CARE

Im internationalen Fokus: Frühe Hilfen/Erziehung und Bildung - 3rd International Staff Week vom 3 – 8 May 2015

Wissensaustausch mit Hochschullehrenden von 14 internationalen Hochschulen aus 8 Ländern und Studierenden des Studiengangs Gesundheit und Pflege

Bereits zum dritten Mal lud die Fachhochschule Kärnten ihre Partnerhochschulen aus dem Ausland zu einer International Staff Week ein. Das diesjährige Thema lautete: EARLY LIFES FAMILY CARE.

ZurZeit rückt die gesundheitliche Versorgung von Kindern in vielen europäischen Ländern in den Blickpunkt des öffentlichen Interesses. Häufig alarmiert  durch medienwirksame Fälle von Kindesvernachlässigung, -mißhandlung bis –tod,  entwickeln sich EU-weit verschiedene Programme, Initiativen und Maßnahmen, um gesundheitliche Chancengleichheit zu fördern und allen Kindern einen gesunden Start ins Leben zu ermöglichen.

 Unter ganz unterschiedlichen Bezeichnungen, wie: Frühe Hilfen, Frühe Bildung, Frühförderung, Familienunterstützung und Elternbildung etc. etablieren sich interdisziplinäre Kooperationen, deren Aufgabenfelder weit über die Grenzen bisheriger Gesundheits- und Hilfesysteme hinausgehen. Darin involviert ist ein ebenso weites berufliches Spektrum: von Sozialarbeiter/innen, Familienschwestern und -hebammen über Erzieher/-innen, Logopädg/innen, Physiotherapeut/-innen, Psycholog/-innen bis zu Kinderärzt/-innen und  Gynäkolog/innen.

Mit 24 Expert/innen aus acht Ländern und vierzehn internationalen Hochschulen (von Niederlande, Finnland, Lettland, Deutschland, Schweiz, Slovenien bis Österreich)  wurden daher  vor allem neue transdiziplinäre Formen interprofessionellen Wissens- und Kompetenzvermittlung diskutiert.

Eine der zentralen Herausforderung in diesem Bereich steht besonders für Hochschulen an. Der anstehende Professionalisierungsprozess in diesem neuen Feld sozialer und gesundheitlicher Arbeit sollte grade auf der Ausbildungsebene zukunftsorientiert und nachhaltig begleitet werden,  so die Initiatorin und Koordinatorin Regina Klein (Professorin für Gesundheitssoziologie im Studienbereich Gesundheit und Soziales). 

Ergebnis der arbeitsintensiven Tagung war die Konsolidierung einer Netzwerkgruppe, die über eine Moodle-Platform weiter im Austausch steht und gemeinsam Projekte auf internationaler Ebene entwickelt.

Ein bewegtes Leben für Menschen mit Demenz

Fokus Mensch

Das Zusammenspiel von neuen und traditionellen Berufsbildern in unterschiedlichen Lebensbereichen

Vernetzung, Austausch und gelebte Praxis am Campus Feldkirchen. Die Veranstaltung der Studiengänge Disability & Diversity Studies, Gesundheits- & Pflegemanagement, Gesundheits- & Krankenpflege und Soziale Arbeit findet am Freitag, den 22.November 2019 von 09:00 bis 15:00 Uhr an der FH Kärnten am Campus Feldkirchen statt.
Der Praktikumstag 2019 ermöglicht die Begegnung von Hochschule, Praktikumseinrichtungen und Studierenden. Gegenseitig können Informationen über die gelebten Praxen sowie über Studien- und Forschungsinhalte besprochen werden. Ziel der Veranstaltung ist ein inhaltlicher und wertschätzender Austausch.

Das Thema im Jahr 2019 lautet: „Fokus Mensch – Das Zusammenspiel von neuen und traditionellen Berufsbildern in unterschiedlichen Lebensbereichen.“ Der Mensch steht im Fokus der Arbeit einer multidisziplinären Gesundheits- und Soziallandschaft. Dabei stellt sich die Frage, welche Gewinne die Zusammenarbeit unterschiedlicher Berufsgruppen mit sich bringt.

In den Keynotes berichten Unternehmen, wie das Zusammenspiel von neuen und traditionellen Berufsbildern in ihren Einrichtungen aussieht. Dabei wird der Schwerpunkt der multidisziplinären Zusammenarbeit auf die Beiträge der AbsolventInnen und PraktikantInnen der vier verschiedenen Studiengänge gelegt.

Wir freuen uns, wenn Sie sich den 22. November 2019 für eine gemeinsame Begegnung reservieren!

Das Diskussionsspiel „Gesundheitsförderung – lohnt sich das?“

Entwickelt an den Studiengängen Gesundheits- und Pflegemanagement der Fachhochschule Kärnten

Spielelemente können in der hochschulischen Lehre eingesetzt werden, um studentische Partizipation, Studienmotivation und vertiefendes Lernen zu fördern (Fischer et al., 2017). PlayDecide bietet einen Rahmen zur Entwicklung interaktiver Serious Games, die Studierende zu Diskussionen anregen können (Ward et al., 2017), und wurde für das Spiel „Gesundheitsförderung – lohnt sich das?“ genutzt.

Im Rahmen der Lehrveranstaltung „Settings der Gesundheitsförderung und Prävention“ wurde an den Studiengängen Gesundheits- und Pflegemanagement der Fachhochschule Kärnten gemeinsam mit Studierenden ein PlayDecide-Diskussionsspiel zur Bedeutsamkeit von Gesundheitsförderung entwickelt. Dieses soll auf spielerische Art und Weise Diskussion, kritische Reflexion und Meinungsbildung zur Gesundheitsförderung im Allgemeinen und in speziellen Settings anregen. 

Basierend auf wissenschaftlicher Literatur und auf Gastvorträgen aus der Praxis wurden die nötigen Spielelemente konzipiert: Geschichten-, Informations-, Themen- und Aufgabenkarten, ein Platzset und vier politische Positionen zur Gesundheitsförderung. Eine erste Evaluation wurde im Sommersemester 2018 vorgenommen.

Das Diskussionsspiel zur Gesundheitsförderung folgt einem innovativen didaktischen Ansatz. Es kann an anderen Hochschulen eingesetzt werden bzw. bei Akteur*innen im Gesundheitssystem, um zur Diskussion zur Gesundheitsförderung einzuladen, politische Stellungen transparent zu machen und Entscheidungsprozesse zu begleiten.

Das Diskussionsspiel zum Download.
