Funding: own funds
The number of especially biologically female adolescents with gender dysphoria has increased inexplicably in recent years.

School nursing is internationally an established profession in nursing. School-based nurses help maintain students' health, identify health risks, and manage health issues. In a transnational model project, the implementation of school health professionals in 30 schools is monitored and evaluated. To evaluate the work of the school's own nurses, qualitative interviews are conducted with students and focus groups with parents and teaching staff. A standardized survey of these groups of actors also provides information about the health situation at the schools. In addition, participatory workshops with school health professionals and various expert interviews will be evaluated.
