“Embedding Person-Centred Conversations into Health”
The Centre for Organisational Change in Person‐Centred Healthcare (OCPH) was developed for consumers and health professionals and aims to improve person-centred care and transform the healthcare consumer experience.
Our aim is to improve patient directed care and transform healthcare consumer experience. We provide education and training and use translational research to influence change in the policy and culture of healthcare systems.
Organisational change is achieved through collaborative, innovative, inter-professional implementation research and education. In simple terms we must translate existing knowledge into everyday clinical practice.
The OCPH foundations are built around the following Key Pillars of Education and Research:
Workforce Capacity Building; Community Empowerment; Implementation of Impact and Outcomes; End of Life Care
To facilitate this, we offer tailored educational programs for health professionals to foster person-centred healthcare.
OCPH clinical communication workshops equip healthcare professionals with the skills required to effectively communicate with patients, carers, families and across professional disciplines. With a strong focus on building knowledge of established educational frameworks, our workshops are learner-centred and evidence-based, often including participant interaction with simulated patients to assist in the application of learned skills. In response to adaptations required in the face of the global pandemic, the OCPH team also include a range of webinar-based programs in addition to a full suite of face-to-face workshops.
Our faculty comprises experienced clinician educators, skilled in small-group experiential learning, ensuring training that is both clinically applicable and effective.
