Good Practice, Good Health Incorporated is a not-for-profit organisation that aims to enhance the experience of working inside the health system and that of entering the system as a patient or carer.
We aim to build partnerships across all of the relationships in the health system by educating doctors, medical staff, health administrators and other health care providers in patient centered care, mindfulness, patient advocacy, engaging and communicating with our patients and each other more effectively and in empathy. We also aim to engage and educate patients and the community in health literacy and lifestyle change so that people can take a more active role in their own health care team for better long-term health.
We believe that building skills in these areas will lead to better health care outcomes for patients and families and improved levels of satisfaction and less burnout for health care professionals.
We specifically aim to provide cross professional training and education opportunities that involve professionals and patients and their families together so that we can all challenge and grow beyond what we already experience in the health care system.
