Unlike organisational change management consultants we are experts in the behaviour of individuals.


Our approach to research is to embed research in educational evaluation so that, as far as possible, data is collected as routine evaluation.


Learn how behavioural science can help us understand and change professional practice.


We are behavioural scientists and health professional educators.

We know that behavioural science and health professional education have a natural synergy but that it is rare for them to work together.

With our co-development approach to research and practice, we get behavioural science into places where it can make a difference, we research what happens when people educate healthcare professionals and we influence health education policy.

The important questions

We work directly with educators so that our research answers questions that will have impact.

A direct pathway to impact

We use our large, international network of educators and health partnerships to gather data, implement findings and influence policy: we have a direct pathway to impact.

Creating the science of behaviour

We are multidisciplinary, global and committed to translating and creating the science of behaviour.

Making positive changes to healthcare

We create learning resources so that educators and healthcare professionals can learn about what drives practice and how they might harness that knowledge to make positive changes to healthcare.
