This week, a video called Putting Patients First: Transforming Health Care in Saskatchewan showed on TV screens throughout the Institute for Healthcare Improvement’s National Forum on Quality Improvement in Healthcare in Orlando Florida. Each year, the Forum welcomes 6,000 people from across the globe who have a passion for improving health care.
Saskatchewan is the first province in Canada to attempt large-scale improvements in patient-centred care using Lean; the video gives an overview of what our health system hopes to achieve with this approach. It features clips of Drs. Shaw, Kopriva, Groot, and Fourie, Dan Florizone, Heather Thiessen, Rosalee Longmoore, and Bonnie Brossart. The video is 6 minutes.
