What is Nobox?

We intend to explore the human potential of the health professionals and services by delivering interdisciplinary, dynamic and tailored interventions, aiming at improving the individual, colective and institutional performances and, consequently, healthcare.

Nobox wants to contribute for the strengthning of healthcare by investing in the human potential of its professionals and services.

Interprofessionalism, health policy, new developments in medical education amongst others are the pillars around which we intend to generate change and innovation drives, particularly in the way that health professionals work and communicate together. Moreover, we beleive that ensuring constructive relations with entities of differents fields is of paramount importance for the growth and development of healthcare, reason why nobox aims at building bridges and closing gap in healthcare both in Portugal and abroad.


Why nobox?

Currently health professionals face several interpersonal and intrapersonal challenges that impact their personal and professional lives, reflecting a shift of working environments, demands and paradigms. Nonetheless, medical education and pre and post-graduation training, albeit an amazing progress that has been done so far, are still lacking a serious and transversal approach to a set of skills that are essential for these new challenges.

Such competencies are already mentioned and tackled differently worldwide by several institutions that pace the international impetus for the development of human resources for a better healthcare. In May 2016 the World Health Assembly of the World Health Organization has approved its Strategy for the year of 2030 of Human Resources for Health. Amongst many other topics, it highlights:

  1. the need to develop interprofessionalism in healthcare,
  2. focus on the patient as the core of health services, and
  3. the importance of skills such as leadership, team management, team work, communication and health advocacy.

The Lancet has also reaffirmed the need of investing in these competencies, as a way to tackle the challenges of the professionals of the new century, as well as other entities and initiatives such as the competencies listed in the CanMEDS Roles Framework of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Our mission is to positively contribute for the development of management and interpersonal competencies in healthcare. We believe in the added value of the interdisciplinarity, knowledge and intergerational experience of our team, and this is how we work not only together but as well with our partners and clients.

We believe that the creation of authentic healthcare teams will be the next step in the strenghtening of healthcare!
