Bavarian Ambulatory Covid-19 Monitor (BaCoM)

Measuring physical and psychological effects of the Covid-19 pandemic

The "Bavarian Outpatient Covid-19 Monitor" (BaCoM) was a bavarianwide, prospective registry study to depict the living situation of people needing care during the COVID-19 pandemic in Bavaria. Persons receiving nursing care, caregivers, and general practitioners were surveyed.

The results were intended to serve as a basis for suggestions to improve the care situation. These findings were presented to the State Ministry of Health, Care, and Prevention during the final symposium on November 20, 2023.

The BaCoM project was led by the Institute of General Medicine at LMU Munich and supported by an interdisciplinary team of experts in sociology, infectiology, and nursing sciences from Ludwig Maximilian University, Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nuremberg, Julius Maximilian University Würzburg, and the Catholic Foundation University of Munich.
