CAREER COUNSELLING FROM THE MEDICAL POINT OF VIEW
COOPERATION WITH THE BAD KROZINGEN BASED “CAREER AND HEALTH” COUNSELLING CENTRE
Any efficient rehabilitation must consist of seamlessly integrated services aimed at enabling the patient to participate as far as possible in community life. As established in the German Social Welfare Law (SGB IX), the rehabilitation services have to be provided in a swift, efficient and cost-effective manner. Therefore, it is important to figure out early the socio-economic impacts of the existing health conditions.
In view of the rapidly changing working environment and business world, it is essential that the rehabilitation incorporates both medical therapies and career counselling. This requires an accrued awareness and consideration of the patient’s problems relating to work and career as well as a timely planning of suitable individual measures for work reintegration during the medical rehabilitation.
For this purpose, we have signed an agreement with the Bad Krozingen based “Zentrum Beruf und Gesundheit” (“Career and Health” Counselling Centre) in order to better fulfil this mission to the benefit of our patients. Thanks to the agreement, the St. Georg Clinic gets support for the early evaluation of work- and career-related issues and for the assistance of the patient in the solution of such problems. The aim of the support is to facilitate work reintegration by opening up new job opportunities, to encourage the patient’s self-reliance and self-motivation and to ensure a timely planning of the reintegration into working life.
These services benefit all working age patients undergoing a medical rehabilitation or post-operative rehabilitation at the St. Georg Clinic in Höchenschwand, who are capable of undertaking a gainful employment, but face problems related to work or career.
