OBJECTIVE: The aim of the study was to determine the existing evidence on discharge management (EM) in MmkB and people with dementia (MmD). Furthermore, the study examined the necessity of an intersectoral c...

Even a cursory view on the debate about intersectionality reveals that this is not a coherent theory or a uniform approach to the investigation of multiple inequalities. Instead openness and ambiguity are described as central characteristics of the concept, which result from the diversity of the reference theories and the multidimensionality of the categories of difference and relationships of inequality to be examined. In this article the question as to whether an intersectional perspective can...
BACKGROUND: Despite a high prevalence in the general practitioner (GP) and geriatric field, limitations of oral health of seniors under outpatient care in Germany are not routinely recorded. Since seniors with a high age visit GPs more often than dentists, the question arises whether an interdisciplinary screening instrument can be used to identify reduced oral health in routine practice. OBJECTIVE: The aim of the work was to develop a screening tool for reduced oral health for GPs and to valida...
