Special care requires basic understanding of nursing and knowledge of the disease and focuses on complementary, special observation, preventive measures, creating care plans, advisory function and competencies of cooperation in medical diagnostic and therapeutic measures.
All of the following nursing focuses should be linked to (evidence-based) nursing science study results.
Nursing priorities in connection with diagnostics, conservative and operative therapy of patients with diseases of the immune system using the example:
- HIV and AIDS

Nursing priorities in connection with diagnostics, conservative and operative therapy of patients with metabolic diseases using the example:
- Diabetes mellitus type I and II
- Obesity

> Acute and chronic inflammatory diseases e.g. ulcer, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, pancreatitis
> Gastrointestinal carcinoma
> Pancreatic carcinoma
> Cirrhosis
- Acute emergencies e.g.: ileus, peritonitis
