    Health care education in my country (Germany)

    Introduction:
    Health care education comprises the imparting of knowledge, ability and behaviour related to human health. Measures can be offered for example by schools, ensurance companies or other facilities in the form of lectures, seminars or classes. They are an integral part for example in the curriculum for PE teachers or traffic education.
    It should be one of the basic elements that is taught to adults as well as children as early as possible. People have to know how to prevent diseases and take care of themselves or their children in case of sickness. Furthermore, it is very important to educate the population on the structure of our health care system in order to achieve general knowledge on which health care they are entitled to and where to turn to in different situations.

    Content:
    In my opinion. Germany is lacking sufficient health care education, especially in school but also later in life. In order to achieve a broader understanding of health issues in the general population it is necessary to start educating people as early as possible.
    Instead of teaching very specific subjects like quantum physics we would need a lesson that is specifically dedicated to human health, starting already in elementary school with a basic understanding of the human body. Even though various health issues are covered within the context of the subject biology, the amount of time spent on human health in contrast to animal models or ecology is insufficient. Sexology is another important subject which is anchored in the syllabus in german high schools, but most teachers are embarrased to talk about it and therefore go over the contents too quickly in order for students to really learn or understand anything.
    The STADA health report from 2017 focused on the health knowledge of the younger generation, surveying 2,000 Germans between the ages of 18 and 24.
    The results of the report were alarming. For example, only forty percent of the young adults had knowledge on how long they could infect other people in case they suffer from the common cold. Furthermore, 85 percent of germans in the survey did not know that they can get infected by sexually transmitted diseases in case of unprotected sex, posing a major hazard to the population.
    Another very important issue is the education on how to provide First Aid. In german schools, there are no obligatory first aid courses. Only students that want to take part in the school’s medical service, are trained in measures that have to be taken in the case of emergencies.
    Before germans receive their driving license they have to take part in a first aid course that, depending on the driving school, usually lasts one day and ends with a short examination. In my opinion, one day is not even remotely enough in order to equip people with the skills they would need in order to help the victims on the site of a car crash or some other medical emergency.
    There is a law that obliges everyone to provide first aid in case of emergencies that are dangerous to a person’s life. Even though this law exists, people often fail to do so. I have been a paramedic for two years before I came to Prague and often saw people that didn’t perform CPR on a person who clearly needed it, simply because they didnt know how to. They were afraid to make things worse or break something, when in reality there was nothing they could do wrong except for doing nothing.
    This is attributed mainly to the lacking education and could easily be prevented with yearly first aid courses for driving license holders or even everyone.
    When it comes to general physicians, people in Germany are usually well informed, for example on against what to vaccinate their children, necessary screening tests or pregnancy precautions.
    Especially when a woman is pregnant, she is advised by the physician to take her supplements, quit drinking and smoking and stick to regular check-up appointments.

    Conclusion:
    There is a need to improve education on health care in Germany, especially in schools or when it comes to first aid. A separate subject on „Human Health“ in school and regular obligatory first aid courses could be first approaches to adressing the topic.
