Internationally, the higher health care and nursing services in primary care facilities has played an important role for years. In Austria, this field is now to be expanded, thereby facilitating access to health services and help with health issues through primary care facilities.

It is planned to also house other health and social professions in such institutions.

Your main tasks include identifying and advising on lifestyle and living environment-associated risks, long-term care of chronically ill and multimorbid patients as well as preventive home visits.
