     Introduction to Lean Thinking - One Day
                    Workshop
                       Wednesday 6 December 2006
                           8.30am to 5.00pm
Over the past 3 years, Flinders Medical Centre has been improving the patient journey
using Lean Thinking principles. Although developed in manufacturing, this approach is
proving to be highly applicable to healthcare. Despite a 25% increase in activity,
Flinders Medical Centre has applied this methodology to
      ·   reduce waiting times for emergency patients,
      ·   reduce length of stay for medical patients,
      ·   reduce the number of outliers,
      ·   halve waiting times for discharge prescriptions

By attending this workshop you will;
        gain an understanding of Lean Thinking principles and their origins,
        gain an understanding of how these principles apply to healthcare,
        hear case studies that demonstrate the outcomes that are possible,
        gain an understanding of value stream mapping and other lean tools,
        consider how to apply lean in your own practice environment.

   Limited places are available – early registration recommended.
