For Health Professionals

Health Innovation for Health Professionals

Copenhagen Health Innovation aims to facilitate health innovation through education.

We do this by introducing concrete challenges from practice into teaching and by supporting the continued training of health professionals through e.g. innovative simulation courses, where the participants acquire the skills to undertake procedures in order to ensure greater patient safety and satisfaction.

Do you have a challenge from practice?

CHI is working on incorporating concrete challenges from the City of Copenhagen and the Capital Region of Denmark into the teaching in selected study programmes at the Technical University of Denmark, the University of Copenhagen and University College Copenhagen. When students work with actual challenges, they gain greater health professional knowledge, interdisciplinary competences and an innovative mindset, just as they get a better understanding of the reality they will face after graduation.

Therefore, we are constantly looking for new challenges. Please contact us if you have identified a challenge in practice that you would like to get a new perspective on.

Courses on health innovation

Health professionals have a range of opportunities for further developing their competences and gaining new professional input.

Quality assurance of colonoscopy

In order to support the national screening programme for bowel cancer, CHI is in the process of developing a device able to evaluate the quality of colonoscopies and provide feedback on the procedure. On this basis CHI is also developing a simulation-based study programme to certify doctors for the procedure. The objective is to increase the quality of these examinations, ensuring that they are performed safely and carefully.

CHI expects to launch the study programme in 2017.
