Short Bio

Nathalie Heinz studied Nursing and Health Science at the Protestant University of Applied Sciences in Darmstadt and is currently pursuing her PhD in Biomedical Ethics and Law at the University of Zurich.
During her studies she completed a 14-week research internship at the University Hospital Zurich (USZ). She gained valuable insights while working on the project "PAM Kog Phase 2". There she focused on the care provided to patients with cognitive impairments in acute care settings. Additionally, Nathalie Heinz worked as a research assistant in the "POINTED" project at the Hessian Institute for Nursing Research for over two years. The primary aim of the project was to develop an interdisciplinary media-based intervision concept to support nurses in dealing with psychosocial stress.
Her research currently focuses on the effect of non-pharmaceutical protective measures against Covid-19 in nursing homes.
