This unit introduces students to the clinical redesign methodology and its process. Students will learn about effective redesign methods, theories and frameworks in a global context to prepare them to initiate clinical redesign in practice. Students will learn about concepts such as visual management controls, 5 S, push and pull and human and relational factors in complex people centred environments. Students will be educated about broader system issues and reform such as more timely care, better access and more efficient use of clinical and other resources. There will be a focus on system efficiency, better patient experience, patient journey and value-adding healthcare.
