1. Supporting Our Learning and Development
Nursing Education in KTPH consist of in-house courses developed by healthcare professionals. There are also teaching and learning activities developed for nurses to contextualise their learning for workplace application. These include in-services and unit-specific programmes curated for emergent and ongoing learning needs.
Proficient nurses are given the opportunity to attend formal education courses to further their professional development in specialised fields.
Our nurses are encouraged to attend and present in local and overseas conferences to stay updated on the latest trends in clinical care, as well as to learn and share their knowledge with other healthcare professionals.
2. Promoting Continuous Improvement
Our nurses are empowered to have a voice in decision-making, thus encouraging diverse and creative input that will help advance our healthcare mission through continuous improvement. This is achieved through staff-led initiatives such as Kaizen, quality improvement, and shared governance projects. Nurses are also trained in patient safety and risk management, ensuring care standards through internal cross-department audits and helming patient safety discussions with senior clinicians.
3. Building Our Nursing Research Capacity
We aim to develop a research-based culture where nurses consistently incorporate evidence-based practice into decision-making and daily nursing practices to achieve high quality of care for our patients.

4. Encouraging Rotational Exposure
Professional development not only encompasses career progression, but also the deepening of the level of practice, to manage the increasing complexity of care. To nurture and hone the development of our nurses, they are encouraged to rotate across different settings and specialties. Rotation enriches professional knowledge and skills throughout our nurses’ careers, and also ensures a fresh infusion of talents in each setting.
