Johnson & Johnson has announced that its family of companies has formed the Johnson & Johnson Institute. It will provide comprehensive professional education focused on helping healthcare professionals (HCPs) achieve the triple aim − improve outcomes, increase patient satisfaction, and reduce costs in a value-based care environment. The curriculum includes on-site classes, virtual reality and app-based surgical simulation training to help clinical and non-clinical HCPs address the demands of healthcare delivery.

“In the EMEA region, the Johnson & Johnson Institute serves the educational needs of more than 20 medical and surgical specialties and offers training in a range of surgical techniques to over 27,000 HCPs at more than 600 multidisciplinary surgical training events each year”, – comments Filip Standaert, Vice-President EMEA Education Solutions.

The Johnson & Johnson Institute brings together a network of online education and collaborative partnerships across multiple specialties and 26 professional education facilities, including five within the EMEA region. The aim is to deliver innovative educational programs that foster lifelong learning throughout every stage of a HCP’s career.

“Around the world, significant disparities in healthcare professional education and training, coupled with a shortage of health workers, means that some patients and consumers are unable to benefit from the latest medical knowledge and expertise,” said Sandra Humbles, Vice President, Global Education Solutions for Johnson & Johnson Medical Devices Companies.

“Globally, healthcare systems face resource challenges, increasing numbers of patients that lack access to
quality healthcare and the continuous need for professional training on new technologies and procedures. Increasing access to healthcare education to improve outcomes and enhance the patient experience – while also reducing costs – is crucial. The Johnson & Johnson Institute will harness the breadth, reach, resources and collective passion of the Johnson & Johnson Family of Companies to address these needs.”
