  12. 12. 3 Capacity Building: Thesis First insights: • We have to define our responsibility. (see focus group 1, participant 6) • There is not always a shortage of human or time resources, but also the question of how to use our resources in a meaningful way?! (see focus group 1, students 4)
  13. 13. 3.1 Capacity Building: Primary Nursing • Does not follow the structural-functionalist concepts of traditional health care provision in Germany. • Disciplinary demarcation between professions does not appear to be suspended, but they are not primarily action-determining. • Flat hierarchies, coupled with a principle of professional reflection, characterize teamwork and make it possible to identify specific competencies that can be described as transdisciplinary.
  14. 14. • Interprofessional collegial cooperation • Process derivation according to the needs and requirements of the client • Competence-oriented teamwork Primary Nursing minimizes disturbances and fears of those involved and thus minimizes disruptions and fears in the system 4. Vision
