General Practice Research

Research is the foundation of a good and high-quality patient care in general practice.

We deal with health services research. Health services research is the scientific study of the "reality" of health care for both individuals and the population as a whole. Our focus lies on identifying and avoiding oversupply in ambulantory healthcare.

We work in an interdisciplinary team consisting of physicians, psycologists, sociologists, public health scientists as well as study assistants.

Alongside general practitioners, we are establishing and further developing the general practitioner research network BayFoNet.

The citizens´ advisory board advises us on the development and implementation of our research projects.
