Thematic Analysis

The AHPGS has a concept for the regular publication of thematic analyses according to the “Standards and guidelines for quality assurance in the European Higher Education Area (ESG)” The preparation of thematic analyses is secured in the long term by a resolution of the Board of Directors on the provision of resources.

(Hrsg.): Gesundheit und Soziale Arbeit. Neu-Ulm: AG SPAK Bücher, S. 93-112. Further information.

Content: Consideration is given to how new perspectives are unfolding for various addressee-related service professions against the background of changing conditions in health care. In the author’s view, the dominant position of the physician lead profession in health care is increasingly being challenged. Thus, the importance of increased cooperation and interprofessional division of labor is growing. For social work, it is therefore important to emphasize its special competencies more strongly in relation to the other professional groups in the health care system. The article reviews the current scientific literature and takes into account experiences of the accreditation practice of the AHPGS.
