A partner network of the New Quality of Work Initiative
How can knowledge from research and development projects be prepared on an effective and simultaneously user-friendly basis? What does the world of organisational practice need? Which topics and issues are being discussed here, and what answers is the research able to, or not yet able to provide? These questions are at the heart of BAuA's work in the Healthy Care Campaign.
The Healthy Care Campaign is a partner network within the New Quality of Work Initiative (Initiative Neue Qualität der Arbeit / INQA). The key focus of the joint work is the transfer of the existing knowledge regarding healthy working conditions in the area of care to the organisations, with the goal of gaining and supporting nursing staff and carers' health and their ability to work.
The leadership and coordination of the network is the responsibility of the Employers' Liability Insurance Association for Medical Services and Welfare (Claudia Stiller-Wüsten), the Federal Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs (Reimund Overhage), and the Federal Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (Ulrike Rösler).
The members include representatives of associations in the caring professions, employers' liability insurance associations, research institutes, occupational health and safety bodies, universities, businesses, social insurance providers and the German federal government. Working together, they are committed to achieving good working conditions as the basis for effective and forward-looking professional nursing and care. The network is open to all of those who wish to support this goal.
The Healthy Care Campaign holds a network meeting three times a year. At these meetings, the latest topics are discussed, future activities are agreed, and impetus is gained for the subsequent cooperation.
The Healthy Care Campaign also attends regional and national trade shows and events, at which it is present with information stands. In the scope of the New Quality of Work Initiative, support is also issued to development and transfer projects in the areas of nursing and care.
