Clinical Reasoning & Process Design



Union University's Center for Excellence in Health Care Practice and Healthcare Performance Partners are combining their expertise in providing clinical-based educational opportunities that include learning experiences in human patient simulation and anatomical exploration. Designed to go beyond typical lecture-based training, the series of courses will explore the progression of disease states from a Lean management perspective. Together, we will explore how the entire episode of care can be affected from a systems approach to enhance the quality of patient care.

Bridging the Clinical & Operational Pathways Series

Excellence in Clinical Care of CHF

Congestive Heart Failure

The Congestive Heart Failure course will be the first in a series of courses addressing various pathophysiological disease states that impacts the overall wellness and efficiency of patient care delivery.

The educational series will utilize human patient simulators and hands on training in the anatomy lab to allow participants to understand root causes of typical problems associated with the course of disease progression. Taught in Union University's state-of-the-art clinical simulation and anatomical laboratories, participants will explore the value stream occurring behind each step of the clinical care continuum of Congestive Heart Failure, from the Emergency Department admission to home health coordination.

Attendees will learn the Lean tools and techniques that can be used to solve the root cause, improve care processes for heart failure patients, address Joint Commission Core Measures, and improve organizations' systems for treating and managing congestive heart failure.

Who Should Attend: All Healthcare Practitioners, Nurses, Physicians, Nursing Educators, Clinical Preceptors, ICU/MedSurg / Telemetry / Cardiac floor nurses, Case Management, Risk Management, EMT/Paramedics, Administrators of Hospitals and Nursing Homes.

Watch for more details of upcoming Bridging the Clinical & Operational Pathways series of course offerings.

What Our Students Are Saying...

"Very realistic simulation. Patient demonstrated high levels of anxiety during the acute chest pain in a believable way. This provided a good example of how someone really might feel and act when experiencing these things."
