Management training in the healthcare sector | Heilbronn
About the person

Christiane Matzke is a nurse, qualified medical educator, mindfulness and resilience trainer and has more than 30 years of management responsibility in hospitals. As a long-standing nursing director at large hospitals, she is just as concerned about the professionalisation of nursing in Germany as she is about interprofessional cooperation between healthcare professions geared towards the care process. With the premise “attitude decides”, she supports and accompanies nursing staff and managers in the healthcare sector on their development path.

Her support of numerous innovative projects for nursing practice, such as “implementation of clinical education units as interprofessional training units”, “improvement of the cross-sector discharge process”, “introduction of nursing experts for academically trained nursing staff” and “planning and implementation of the reference care system according to the principles of primary nursing” prove Christiane Matzke to be an expert in supporting change processes in the healthcare sector.

She has been involved in various expert groups of the Robert Bosch Stiftung, including Rethinking Nursing (2000), Cooperation between Healthcare Professions (2004), 360 Degrees – Qualification Mix for Patients (2018) and is the recipient of the Robert Bosch Medal “be human and honour human dignity”.
