Launched in 2016, ESTHER Network Singapore aims to promote the philosophy of person-centred care and to train a pipeline of ESTHER Coaches to drive improvement work to better serve our patients and their caregivers.

The ESTHER Network started in Jonkoping, Sweden in 1997. "Esther" is a symbolic 88-year-old lady who requires close coordination across different care settings to address her health and social care needs.

The Network constantly seeks to answer the question, "What is best for Esther?" by putting the individual at the heart of all its work.   

Much like the Swedish "Esther", we have our very own "Mdm Teo" with complex care needs. Find out what truly matters to her:

As of September 2021, 271 health and social care professionals from 72 institutions have undergone the ESTHER Coach training programme to lead and facilitate person-centred improvement work.  

We are now accepting nominations for the ESTHER Coach Workshop 2022. Please click here for more info.  Closing date: 25 March 2022.
