Lean Thinking and Problem-Solving in Healthcare

Lean Thinking and Problem-Solving in Healthcare

Course Synopsis:

Problems occur in healthcare every day and we have become experts in creating solutions to extinguish the immediate fire. This often occurs in a reactive way, without a structure for identifying and solving the problems completely at the source so that they do not recur repeatedly. In this 1-day workshop, learn how to make structured problem-solving an integral part of day-to-day work, reducing errors and re-works that frustrate staff every day. As part of the session, you will apply the concepts learnt in your own workplace with takeaways that you can immediately embark on.

What You Will Learn:

Through instruction, discussions, and hands-on simulations, participants will: 
UNDERSTAND the origins and principles of Lean thinking
APPLY the Lean problem-solving approach in a simulation
LEARN Lean tools to create stability at the workplace
RECOGNISE areas in healthcare to apply Lean 

Who Should Attend:

Clinicians, leaders, and support staff who would like to learn Lean Thinking as an improvement and management system.
