The goal of the research project is to strengthen nursing staff through appropriate workplace enhancement with a particular focus on providing support in interaction work.

Nurses in particular have a special responsibility to provide distinctive and individual interaction in their contact with and care of their patients. By using digital assistance systems, the project DigitalerEngel aims to facilitate the everyday exercise of emotional work (considering own emotions) and emotional work (considering the patient's feelings) and to reduce the associated strain on the nursing staff.
