UBCO IHI attended the 2016 SHARC conference (UBC, Vancouver, BC) to deliver a poster presentation highlighting the establishment of the club, as well as strategies put in place to help foster student education and involvement in quality improvement.
Lean Rapid Process Improvement Workshop (Dec 2016)
UBCO IHI was recently afforded the opportunity to join a dedicated multidisciplinary team from Kelowna General Hospital as a participant in completing a Lean Rapid Process Improvement Workshop aimed at improving the Emergency Department Triage flow and prioritization processes for both BC Ambulance Service patients and patients who self- present at the hospital. A vast amount of ideas for improvement were generated, and many were successfully tested during the week.
