August 15 from 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm ET
Presented by Seán Paul Teeling, Programme Director for the Professional Certificate and Graduate Certificate in Process Improvement in Health Systems at UCD Health Systems.
Lean is one of the most internationally popular process improvement methodologies around the world. Similarly, person-centred approaches have risen in popularity since the millennium with political and policy intentions now widely advocating that person-centredness should be at the heart of the health system. In this webinar, we discuss the first research internationally into the combined use of Lean and person-centred improvement approaches, lessons learnt, and how to be a person-centred improver in any industry or setting.
- Understand what is meant by person-centred improvement
- Identify the synergies between Lean and person-centred improvement
- Understand where person-centred improvement diverges from Lean and how to address it
- Be able to incorporate person-centred approaches into your Lean work
