An international research team headed by Professor Dr Annie Powell, a chemist at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), and Professor Dr Jürgen Schnack, a physicist at Bielefeld University, has synthesized a new magnetic molecule. The team has confirmed that this reveals the largest ground state spin attained so far. It is publishing its new findings today (26.02.2018) in the new Nature partner journal ‘npj Quantum Materials’. Nine scientists at Bielefeld University, the KIT, the University of Magdeburg, and the Università di Modena e Reggio Emilia (Italy) were involved in the studies.[Weiterlesen]

National Action Plan for Health Literacy: Healthcare and academic experts call for a comprehensive strategy

Published on 19. Februar 2018

Federal Health Minister Gröhe: “With this roadmap, we can achieve a great deal."

Every second person in Germany has only limited health literacy. It is hard for them to understand and evaluate health-related information. A team of experts from academia and the healthcare field, led by Doris Schaeffer and Ullrich Bauer from the University of Bielefeld, Klaus Hurrelmann  from the Hertie School of Governance and Kai Kolpatzik from the AOK national association (AOK-Bundesverband), want to combat this deficit with a "National Action Plan for Health Literacy". The plan offers 15 concrete recommendations involving all the relevant actors, and aims to make the healthcare system more user-friendly and promote citizens’ health literacy. The "National Action Plan for Health Literacy" is an initiative of the academics and is sponsored by the Federal Minister of Health. The Robert Bosch Foundation and the AOK-Bundesverband funded the work.[Weiterlesen]
