An important element of the Care for Chronic Condition (CfCC) programme supported by Robert Bosch Stiftung GmbH is the transfer of knowledge and insights gained. By way of experience reports as well as organised transfer workshops and network meetings as part of the support programme, participants receive support for implementing their transfer proposals. Further supporting events help to network stakeholders in the care of the chronically ill and put findings into practice.
Following their stay abroad, every CfCC participant completes a report, which is published in our ‘Knowledge transfer’ section. This allows potential future participants to get an idea of how a CfCC training stay works in practice and find out more about the goals, results and transfer plans of former participants.
In an initial funding phase from 2014 to 2017, the Care for Chronic Condition programme was organised by the g-plus institute of the Witten/Herdecke University in Germany. In 2017, Ellen Keuchel and four of her colleagues took part in a work shadowing stay in Australia. The respiratory therapist reports on her experiences in an interview. Read more here.

Once the first training stays are completed, 1-day moderated transfer workshops will be held at the Irmgard-Bosch-Bildungszentrum (Irmgard Bosch Learning Center), where each participant will present their transfer proposal and report on its implementation status. These networking meetings provide a space to discuss the factors that are helping and hindering the implementation in a group setting. They can take the form, for example, of peer-to-peer or systemic consulting, the idea being that participants support each other and mutually benefit from the exchange.
In addition, participants will present their experiences and insights from their stints abroad to an interested professional audience as part of a symposium. They may also have the opportunity to publish their findings in relevant specialist publications or other media.
