The aging of the population poses major challenges to healthcare systems worldwide. The Leibniz Science Campus Ruhr (LSCR) research collaboration focuses on the German healthcare system and its demographic challenges. Some regions are facing particular difficulties in the face of a rapidly aging population and dwindling nursing staff. This phenomenon is being studied at the Campus. The goal is to derive recommendations for action in health care. The Campus is divided into three research areas: regional differences, sustainable care and prevention.
