Cognitive Institute has launched its first ever E-learning, with two open disclosure modules available to complement our face-to-face workshop programmes.

Both modules are led by ODEL, Cognitive Institute’s Open Disclosure E-learning Leader, who guides participants through the interactive modules. ODEL is happy to provide training on your Learning Management System, and participants are able to access these courses through our hosted site.

Open Disclosure Principles provides an overview of open disclosure, outlining its importance and what it means for patients and clinicians.

Open Disclosure Conversation is a highly interactive e-learning module designed to develop the understanding and skills required to support effective open disclosure.

The courses are ideal for health service organisations needing to train their broader workforce in an understanding of open disclosure principles and practice.

St Vincent’s Health Australia first to access new Open Disclosure e-learning 

St Vincent’s Health Australia will be the first health service organisation to train their workforce in open disclosure principles and practice using Cognitive Institute’s new e-learning modules.

The Open Disclosure Principles and Open Disclosure Conversations e-learning modules will provide clinical staff across St Vincent’s 27 facilities with purpose built educational content based on Cognitive Institute’s highly regarded Open Disclosure training courses.

“St Vincent’s has a long tradition of providing the highest quality of care and is held in high esteem both nationally and internationally,” Group General Manager of Clinical Governance and Chief Medical Officer at St Vincent’s Health Australia, Dr Annette Pantle said.

“We know that worldwide, despite the best efforts of doctors, nurses and other health professionals, sometimes things do go wrong.

“These training modules will assist our clinicians in how to best communicate with patients who have experienced harm and help them understand what has happened.”

According to Cognitive Institute Managing Director Matthew O’Brien, development of the modules was prompted by the new Australian NSQHS standards for accreditation, requiring public and private hospitals to train their clinical workforce in open disclosure.

“We designed these modules to provide accessible and cost-efficient training that supports our range of face-to-face training programmes,” he said.

“More than 10,000 clinicians in over 10 countries have attended a Cognitive Institute designed course in handling patient disappointment following an adverse outcome

“The great advantage of these modules is that they are packaged up ready to install on your organisation’s learning management system.”
