I’m preparing for my webinar on June 7th and am hopeful what I have planned is going to work. Now I realize the topic could be considered somewhat humdrum or even boring – Incident Management System (IMS). Yes, this is going to be about collecting data from GERs and tracking for trends. For those yawning at the very thought of it – I hope you will still tune in.
Approximately 4 years ago, we decided to find a fun way to inform employees about the Basic Assurances for CQL accreditation that involves monitoring of Factors. Our approach to teaching employees about the Ten Factors was to have a “Factor Fun Day”. Staff and people supported rotated from one station to the next and received a short introduction to the factor and how LifeQuest is monitoring that particular factor. The stations included such things as Green Acres, Top Ten on the David Letterman Show and Wheel of Fortune. Of course this also involved the presenters dressing accordingly!
The Factor 4 Workgroup that developed our IMS created a PowerPoint to explain how it works. It was not only fun to create, but we think that most employees actually found it entertaining. If technology works in my favor you will be seeing some of my coworker’s acting abilities illustrating how our system works.
Another memorable training at LifeQuest was watching our nursing staff dancing to the tune of YMCA but replacing the words with medical related acronyms. We really should have been filming that one.
Learning can be fun – so find your creative employees (BTW – that does not include me) and have some fun!
