Evidence-based Nursing & Science

At Rudolfinerhaus, we understand evicence-based nursing (EBN) as a guideline for research and practice which tries to develop concrete solutions for practical use and employs various sources of knowledge: scientific research, clinical expertise, patients’ preferences and local data.

It is our goal to provide patients with high-quality and effective nursing, which is based on scientific evidence.

Partership with Vienna University’s Institute for Nursing Science.

Partnerships between academic and practice institutions are a strategic instrument to link research, training and practice. In 2015, the partnership between Rudolfinerhaus Foundation (Private Hospital & Campus) and teh University of Vienna (Institute for Nursing Science) was established. It is a platform for developing joint projects and activities which enable patients and their relatives to cope with their disease and to promote their health.

As our first project, the Patient Information and Consulting Centre (PIZ in German) was created. Based on a methodology of developing and testing komplex nurcing interventions, measures to educate the patients are developed, structured and evaluated. Another projects we realized is self management of medication in x your day-to-day life – creation of a information brochure about self management of medication for patients.
