Klara Lorenz-Dant

I am a researcher at the Institute of General Practice at the University Hospital of Augsburg. My work focuses on care pathways of people with chronic diseases. Before moving to Augsburg I worked at the Care Policy and Evaluation Centre at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), where I also completed my PhD in Social Policy. At LSE I contributed amongst other things to the Strengthening Responses to Dementia Project (STRiDE) and the LTCcovid.org intiative.

I am interested in care pathways of people living with chronic diseases, spanning health, social, informal and unpaid care, questions around equity and inequality and the impact of climate change on health and long-term care.
