Improve patient care

How can patients be treated optimally?

Best possible medical care in tropical and travel medicine

With increasing global mobility and internationalization, the demand for health care in tropical and travel medicine will continue to rise. The BNITM therefore intends to further expand its recognized clinical expertise in these areas. This will be achieved, in part, through close cooperation with the Tropical Medicine Section of the University Hospital Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE) in the fields of patient management and management of highly infectious diseases. The BNITM is also planning to expand its consultancy service, which provides advice to physicians in the field of clinical tropical medicine, nationwide. In addition, relevant special outpatient clinics are to be set up within the field.

The further development of travel and migration medicine is a major focus of the BNITMs clinical orientation. In order to keep the care of patients in tropical and travel medicine excellent and up to date, close cooperation between the clinic and clinical research at the BNITM will remain a central focus. A Clinical Reference Centre for diagnostics, therapy and management of imported diseases will be founded. The already close cooperation with the UKE will be further strengthened in order to develop Hamburg into a focal point for the comprehensive clinical care of patients with tropical diseases.
