About us

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.

What we do

We offer tailored training and organisation-level interventions in best practice communication for safe, quality care. We work from an international evidence base and rigorously tested frameworks to ensure the highest standards are upheld. 

Meet our expert faculty, comprising experienced clinician educators, skilled in small-group experiential learning, ensuring training that is both clinically applicable and effective.

  • Government departments
  • Universities and Colleges
  • Health services and hospitals 
  • Non-profit health organisations
  • Health professionals and non-clinical staff
  • Craft groups and peak bodies
