Since 2007, the Department of Pharmacy Services at The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) decided to implement and use lean management principles to improve the medication processes.
To date, the Department of Pharmacy has conducted 10 rapid process improvement (RPI) initiatives. Four of the 10 initiatives were conducted with multidisciplinary teams. Using a lean case study involving the Sedation Unit at CHOP (The Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia), the presenter will describe the general steps of the RPI initiative from conception to final outcome. The steps include:
Pharmacy managers (directors, IV room supervisors, technician supervisors, operations manager) and staff pharmacists and technicians.
Webinar lasts about 1 hour and fifteen minutes, including an extended discussion panel with the speaker and moderator.
