Improvement Story session at the 2013 Saskatchewan Health Care Quality Summit. For more information about the summit, visit www.qualitysummit.ca. Follow @QualitySummit on Twitter.
This presentation will share the results of a Rapid Process Improvement Workshop (RPIW) event that focused on reducing defects in plan of care (admission through to discharge) for hospital patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder (COPD). The RPIW team was the first in Saskatchewan to pilot new tools (standard orders, care maps, discharge education) designed to provide more consistent, collaborative care for COPD patients.
