Suitable for: Healthcare professionals, quality officers and senior/middle managers involved in improving performance and patient outcomes
This half-day training programme is designed to deliver a comprehensive introduction to Lean Six Sigma and the key elements needed to successfully implement Lean as part of a wider transformational change programme or a standalone project within a healthcare environment.
The programme helps to educate and involve healthcare employees in their organisations' efforts to improve process efficiencies and eliminate waste. It is an excellent way to train large numbers of clinical and non-clinical staff as part of a change management or awareness initiative for Lean implementation.
Topics covered include:
- Introduction to Lean Healthcare
- Lean and the patient
- Lean thinking and principles
- Why healthcare organisations typically implement Lean
- What is waste within a healthcare environment?
- Benefits of a 6S programme
Relevant case studies and scenarios are provided throughout to provide a context for the topics covered. Participants also undertake a Lean Healthcare game to gain a greater understanding of the principles underpinning the Lean philosophy.
