The transition of patients from in-patient hospitalizations to treatment from licensed doctors is often coupled with changes to the pharmacotherapy. The course of the sickness and the legal regulations, which are different for each sector, necessitate changes to the pharmacotherapy. Poor communication between these sectors and absent media, which every healthcare professional responsible for the patient can access, can lead to loss of data and quality, ineffective pharmacotherapy, and disruption to the treatment of the patient.
To support the students at the colleges in the state, the Saarland state government founded the private-law StudienStiftungSaar in 2009. Funded with a capital of six million Euro, the StudienStiftungSaar has financed more than 2000 scholarships to date. They provide support for the following areas: MINT (Mathematics, IT, Natural Sciences, Technology), Economics and Law, Health and Fitness, Music and Art as well as Linguistic, Cultural and Social Sciences. When selecting who should receive a scholarship, a voluntary engagement and the social background are of particular interest for the StudienStiftungSaar.
