Addressing the challenges involved in achieving standard work in health care,Getting to Standard Work in Health Care: Using TWI to Create a Foundation for Quality Care describes how to incorporate the most widely used Training Within Industry (TWI) method, the Job Instruction (JI) training module, to facilitate performance excellence and boost employee morale in a health care organization. It not only examines the JI methodology but also explains how this program is as vital and applicable in today’s health care environment as it was when it was developed to train replacements of an industrial workforce off to fight in WWII.
Placing this methodology squarely within the health care paradigm, the book uses easy-to-understand terminology to describe how this method can make all the difference in the delivery of quality health care. Supplying the foundation for successful Lean practice in health care, it clearly defines the role of standard work and training in relation to Lean health care.
The text includes case studies of current TWI usage in health care that demonstrate how to successfully roll out a sustainable Job Instruction initiative. Containing numerous examples of Job Instruction breakdowns in health care, the book provides you with the understanding of how to use this time-tested methodology to improve training, increase efficiency, and decrease strain in your organization.
