OSAP 2015 Symposium Educators Preconference

OSAP 2015 Symposium: Infection Control - Gaining the Edge 


Educators Preconference Part 1 - Six Sigma Methodologies

Educators Preconference Part 2 - IC App/Lean Management




Six Sigma - This workshop is designed to assist educators in examining the “six sigma” methodology to determine if the process can be applied within their educational setting.  Define, Measure, Analyze, Improve, Control (DMAIC) is the itemization involved in the “six sigma” approach.  The lecture will focus on exploring the effectiveness of the process, research related to use in the healthcare setting, discussion of tools available and the possible benefits gained through implementing the DMAIC approach.

IC App - Infection control (IC) programs are intended to ensure safety of patients, clinicians and staff. Our experience shows that the management of a reliable IC system in large clinical environments is a daunting task that requires significant resource allocation. In response to these challenges, we developed an IC app for use on mobile platforms, which allows monitoring compliance, reporting, and documenting corrective action on the clinic floor. The development and implementation process will be presented through the lens of a lean management philosophy. We will present results from the clinic and our vision to incorporate this app in the curriculum.
