In Baden-Württemberg, the Ministry of Social Affairs is endeavouring to implement the principle of "rehabilitation before care" in the care of older people, especially those with geriatric illnesses. A central prerequisite for this is that geriatric patients and their rehabilitation potential are recognised and that the patients can be offered appropriate rehabilitative treatment.

Geriatric rehabilitation in Baden-Württemberg takes place both in the acute inpatient sector - in geriatric focal points, centres and geriatric treatment units - and as geriatric, early-rehabilitative complex treatment as well as through geriatric rehabilitation clinics.

The aim of the research project is to analyse the differences in the clientele and in the further course of rehabilitation between the two forms of care, hospital treatment and geriatric rehabilitation clinic. Furthermore, there is a general need for information regarding the management of geriatric patients after or during a hospital stay as well as regarding the question whether rehabilitation needs are recognized and implemented.

In addition, it is also of interest whether and in which areas there may be overuse, underuse or misuse. These questions will be analysed on the basis of data from the AOK Baden-Württemberg.
