CoRe-Net aims to improve the medical and social care of the Cologne population. As part of this aim, the project publishes a series of health care reports, which take up the tradition of communal health reporting and aim to communicate scientific findings to (health-) policy makers, providers and other interested parties in Cologne.
The reports are based on the results of research that has been and is being conducted within the framework of CoRe-Net. An essential element is the CoRe-Net research database CoRe-Dat.
THE REPORTS FOCUS ON ISSUES SUCH AS:
In order to address current care-related topics and needs in the reports, the development of the health care reports is supported by an advisory board of stakeholders from the greater Cologne area, such as patient representatives, health care providers, and policy makers.
FIRST HEALTH CARE REPORT:
Thematic focus: Care for people in their last year of life in Cologne
One’s own death is a subject that concerns everyone in the course of their lives. The first health care report deals with the challenges of the medical and nursing care situation of Cologne residents in their last year of life and with the question, where this care is currently working well or if there is a need for improvement. It is essentially based on the results of the LYOL-C I project.

SECOND HEALTH CARE REPORT:
Thematic focus: Healthcare of people with coronary heart disease and mental disorders in Cologne

The aim is to derive recommendations for action from the scientific findings, through which the care of Cologne residents with CHD and a concomitant mental disorder can be further improved. It is based on the results of the MenDis-CHD project.
