In week 3, you identify the weakness (the area for improvement) that you wish to continue to work on for your Course Project Task 2 due in this week. In other words, you use the same healthcare setting, for instance ER, to continue and complete your Course Project Task 2 in week 4.
Below are the tasks to be completed in your Course Project Task 2.
- Visit the following link:
- Read the introduction to RCA.
- Read the RCA process.
- Conduct and report an RCA for the area of improvement you selected. Include in your analysis:
- A diagram of the clinical or workflow process
- A fishbone diagram of constraints
- The steps for improvement, utilizing the five-whys tool
- Suggested changes for making the improvement
