Abstract

Background:

A hospital organization with multiple locations and departments is a dynamic organization, which has to deal with a large number of internal and external factors. For the purpose of providing good quality and an effective and efficient patient care, tailored to the actual needs of patients, the focus must be on continuous quality improvement. Therefore, a smart and transparent quality management system for employees and stakeholders is necessary, which is widely accepted in the organization.

Method:

To realize structure, coherence and easy accessibility of information about ambitions, results, developments and regulations, the Northwest Clinics (The Netherlands) implemented an integrated quality management system, called Northwest: How we Work, including The House with Achievement books and the Improve 2.0 App.

Results:

The House with Achievement books is an instrument for employees, staff and managers to document all agreements that are essential for optimal patient care and management. The House demonstrates what you do and the Achievement books how you do in your department. In addition, the Improve 2.0 App with a digital tracking system to register points for improvement has been implemented to achieve structure, transparency and coherence in the multiple lists with action points.

Employees participate in quality groups to understand the necessity and usefulness of an integrated quality management system, to realize acceptance and to contribute to an environment of continuous improvement.

Conclusion:

It is concluded that an integrated quality management system meets the criteria of the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle and a LEAN approach for continuous improvement of quality in patient care and organization development. In addition, the system contributes to a more result-oriented organization.

Blog ::: What to do if you have Borderline Personality Disorder?

Borderline personality disorder (BPD) is a severe mental disorder symptomized by a recurrence of constant volatility in state of mind, behavior, self-perception, and functioning. These experiences frequently result in rash actions and unbalanced relationships. If you have BPD, you might go through extreme periods of rage, depression, and worry that could continue from just some hours to days. Several experts think that emotional invalidation, especially in infancy and teenage years, could be one reason that causes the onset of BPD. Emotional invalidation occurs when somebody expresses to you that your feelings are not authentic, illogical, or ought to be covered up.

BPD, though not curable, can be controlled through certain therapies. Thanks to these treatments, numerous individuals improve or at least have their condition controlled, and subsequently they are able to live a good life. Psychotherapy (or “talk therapy”) is the chief course of action for the improvement of people with BPD. Kinds of psychiatric remedies used for the treatment of BPD include Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), Schema-Focused Therapy, and Systems Training for Emotional Predictability and Problem Solving (STEPPS). It is vital to find a good psychiatrist to diagnose if one suffers from BPD and to treat it, if one does.
