  • Rock Your World??-??Encouraging Process Perpetual Motion

    Every aspect of ensuring quality is an evolutionary process. In order to keep the overall process alive, one needs a little dynamic tension, something to keep the idea of continuous improvement moving forward. Methods to help the group cope with the evolution include the following: using diverse, cross- functional team members; executing continuous process improvements; and migrating activities into an automated tool. A crucial ingredient in process improvement is diversification. One can help encourage active engagement in collaborative process improvement (CPI) by publishing process helpers on the local intranet. The success of any innovation involves early adopters, the majority, and laggards. The rate at which employees adopt any change can be adjusted in several key ways. Each can raise or lower the stickiness of the change through the following variables: relative advantage, compatibility, complexity, trialability and observability.

  • Challenge Your Organization's Culture of Text-Heavy Slides

    Embedded deep into the culture of many organizations is the bullet-heavy approach for technical presentations that so many practitioners know is boring at best. This chapter provides arguments to propel people out of their dependence on bullets. These include addressing the origin of old practices, dispelling the assumption that the audience needs all of the information, avoiding bullet-heavy slides and stopping the usage of slides as teleprompters. There is no magic formula for the number of slides to be used for a presentation; in truth, it takes as many slides as it takes to effectively reach the audience for maximum information retention. In the spirit and practice of continuous improvement, many organizations could use a directed, organized, and focused reevaluation of the effectiveness of current presentation practices. Additionally, rethinking the purpose of the slides for a team effort is essential.

    <p>Have you ever experienced the burden of an adverse event or a near-miss in healthcare and wished there was a way to mitigate it? This book walks you through a classic adverse event as a case study and shows you how.</p><p>It is a practical guide to continuously improving your healthcare environment, processes, tools, and ultimate outcomes, through the discipline of human factors. Using this book, you as a healthcare professional can improve patient safety and quality of care.</p><p>Adverse events are a major concern in healthcare today. As the complexity of healthcare increases-with technological advances and information overload-the field of human factors offers practical approaches to understand the situation, mitigate risk, and improve outcomes.</p><p>The first part of this book presents a human factors conceptual framework, and the second part offers a systematic, pragmatic approach. Both the framework and the approach are employed to analyze and understand healthcare situations, both proactively-for constant improvement- and reactively-learning from adverse events.</p><p>This book guides healthcare professionals through the process of mapping the environmental and human factors; assessing them in relation to the tasks each person performs; recognizing how gaps in the fit between human capabilities and the demands of the task in the environment have a ripple effect that increases risk; and drawing conclusions about what types of changes facilitate improvement and mitigate risk, thereby contributing to improved healthcare outcomes.</p>
