The demography issue poses a major challenge on the health system and health care professions. The Center for Geriatric Medicine and Geriatric Nursing contributes to continuing education through offering postgraduate courses and research activities in the relevant fields. The cooperation between the “Haus der Barmherzigkeit Group”, the “Akademie für Altersforschung” (Academy for Age Research) and the implementation of the center in the facilities located in Seeböckgasse 30A, 1160 Vienna as a branch of Danube University aims to ensure the linking of interdisciplinarity and practical relevance which special emphasis is placed on.
