Managing the healthcare of tomorrow

Health is a high good, which you will become aware of especially if you do not possess it. This makes it all the more important to have experts who start with prevention and health promotion: The course of studies "Healthcare Management" trains future experts for exactly this purpose and enables them to take on management tasks in the health and social sector.

INTERDISCIPLINARY QUALIFICATION

Entrepreneurial thinking and acting in the health and social sector are becoming increasingly important: The greying of our society, the call for evidence-based approaches, the demand to develop and implement high-quality services, cost pressure and digitization are major challenges. The "Healthcare Management" degree programs respond to these challenges with an interdisciplinary education that picks up on regional and international trends.

You want to gain international experience and broaden your horizon? This is possible within the scope of excursions abroad or with a semester abroad at established international partner universities. Students can also already work on research projects. In doing so, students come into contact with management in social and health care institutions, among others. The immersion in the fields of health economics and health management is also theoretically accompanied during the course of studies. Business administration in health care, project management and personnel management are formative topics in the training.

Further focal points of the study courses are in the health sciences - disease prevention, health promotion, disease treatment, nursing and rehabilitation are the main focus here. Research-based learning and project work help students to put theoretical knowledge into practice. This is deepened in the ten-week professional internship in the fifth semester. Accompanied by two seminars, the internship is characterized by an intensive supervision concept based on the experiences of students, internship providers and internship supervisors.

Students can choose between two specialisations: The major in "Health Management" focuses on the assumption of management tasks in health and social institutions, while the major in "Nursing Management" prepares students for management tasks in accordance with the Health and Nursing Act (Nursing Management § 65a). Whichever specialisation students choose - the enormous growth potential in the health sector promises good job prospects in both health and nursing management.

Projekte von Studierenden

An den Studiengängen Gesundheits- und Pflegemanagement arbeiten nicht nur Lehrende und Forschende an Praxis- und Forschungsprojekten, auch unsere Studierenden haben die Möglichkeit, in diesem Bereich erste Erfahrungen zu sammeln. Der Studienplan bietet nämlich zahlreiche Möglichkeiten, um Projekte zu konzipieren, zu realisieren und auch zu evaluieren. Ab Wintersemester 2014 stellen wir die Projekte der Studierenden aus den Studiengängen Gesundheits- und Pflegemanagement an dieser Stelle laufend vor.

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.
