INSIGHT Health Professional Skills and Mindset

Overview

INSIGHT Health Professional Skills and Mindset is calibrated for highly skilled clinicians who make high stakes decisions about patient care, who provide specialized services to patients or who manage departments.  INSIGHT Health Professional is a two-part assessment.  It assesses the critical thinking skills and mindset attributes that characterize professionals with the mindset and reasoning skills required to deliver quality care across your clinical specialties.

A comprehensive assessment of a person’s critical thinking abilities requires measuring skills as well as mindset attributes. Critical thinking is a process which requires strong skills.
