For more than a decade, regulators, hospitals, specialist colleges and training providers throughout the world have turned to Cognitive Institute’s individual improvement programmes to support doctors.
Colleague to colleague, our experienced medical faculty deliver world-class training empathically and without judgment.
Designed to support performance management requirements and professional development needs, the Individual Improvement Series, comprising both short and intensive programmes, engages with a range of specific performance-related issues including:
• colleague and/or patient communication skills
• disruptive team behaviour
• models and skills for safer practice
• professional standards for patient engagement and decision making.
Recent research has found a reduction in average annual complaint or claim events from .42 down to .26 for programme participants, who represented the top 1% of identified at-risk doctors.*
Confidential and discrete, our individual improvement programmes are designed using evidence-based educational research and best-practice training techniques, including simulated patient and colleague interactions. They are focused on skills training and entirely outcome driven.
