Lean Improves the Patient Experience in Gynaecological Oncology

14th April 2014

Gynaecological Oncology at Gateshead QEThe team working in the Northern Gynaecological Centre at Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Gateshead, despite considerable experience, detailed pre-operative clinical assessment and CT imaging, found that the need for bowel surgery was often difficult to predict and they were conscious of the effects this had on the patient experience.

They were conscious of the effects this had on the patient experience so they opted to use Lean approaches to explore the frequency of bowel surgery and assess if stoma formation was predictable pre-operatively, without the need for additional invasive investigation.
