Patient First November 2015 – Cognisco, a specialist in people potential & risk and employee behaviour, is exhibiting at Patient First, a conference focused on improving patient safety for those operating within the NHS and independent healthcare sectors.

 

Patient First is the UK’s largest patient safety conference and exhibition and it brings together medical directors and doctors, directors of nursing and nurses, as well as senior operational staff and other health care professionals. It’s expected to attract around 2,600 attendees who want to learn from expert speakers, meet exhibitors and network.

 

Cognisco’s representatives will be available to talk to delegates about the ground-breaking and practical work it is doing with health and social care organisations to identify, mitigate and address any gaps in staff knowledge, understanding or confidence to improve their performance and the safety of patients.

 

This includes the work it has done in conjunction with leading care operator; Belong, to improve the competence and confidence of carers looking after Dementia patients. Cognisco has developed a Dementia*Care assessment which offers care home providers a simple, highly accurate and affordable way of measuring staff competency. The assessments highlight any gaps and weaknesses and illustrate how carers are likely to think, act and behave in their roles. Using the assessments, care home operators can audit and evidence the quality of care they provide and create reports for regulators, residents and their families.

 

Giuliano Zanchi, Health & Social Care, Cognisco said: “Healthcare teams are facing multiple challenges and pressures to improve standards of care and ensure patient safety. This conference will highlight practical solutions that can assist health care professionals in their front line jobs and enable them to practice with greater confidence and prioritise patient safety.

 

We are looking forward to meeting delegates to talk about the work we are doing in this area, helping to understand the root causes of behaviour and mitigate People Risk when it comes to patient safety and learn about other innovations in the sector.”

 

Cognisco will also be able to talk about its work with a leading NHS Trust to eliminate the risk of serious case incidents and deaths in Obstetrics, by developing a specialist online assessment tool to evaluate the performance of midwives and doctors in simulated acute situations, which has transformed midwifery and medical training for Obstetric emergencies.

 

Cognisco representatives will be available on stand H20 and you can find out more and register to join the event, here.
