The Patient Centered Care (PCC) programme is a dynamic three-part series designed to build the capacity of frontline medical professionals, who desire to be change agents in healthcare.
Participants can expect to learn context specific, practical frameworks and concepts of patient centred care, including, but not limited to, shared decision-making, effective communication, empathetic care delivery and how to respond proactively to rapidly changing healthcare landscape.
The programme boasts a multidisciplinary faculty that includes doctors, nurses and lawyers, who use their wealth of healthcare industry experiences to deliver a practical and contextual curriculum that addresses the changing landscape of healthcare.
PCC is delivered as a three part masterclass series (with each part delivered over two days), and an additional three month capstone.
The series is broken down into three distinct patient centered care subjects and will be delivered through a combination of short lectures, case studies, role play and engaging classroom discussion.
The series is broken down as follows:
Part One: Culture, beliefs and communication
Part Two: Optimizing hospital processes: driving and measuring change
Part Three: Law and ethics
Upon completion of the masterclass series, participants will be required to carry out active learning (capstone) projects to apply the skills learned in the classroom to real-life situations and ensure learning is sustained within their facilities.
