Interdisciplinary Curriculum Development in Hospital Methods Improvement. Final Report.
Watt, John R.
The major purpose of this project was to develop a "package" curriculum of Hospital Methods Improvement techniques for college students in health related majors. The elementary Industrial Engineering methods for simplifying work and saving labor were applied to the hospital environment and its complex of problems. The report's introduction presents a list of course materials. Chapter I discusses the background and objectives of the project, including the program at the University of Texas and its advantages and disadvantages. The project history is presented in chapter II by summarizing earlier project reports. Chapter III deals with the procedures for and problems of developing the different materials for the course. Chapter IV presents the contents of the package curriculum that include: an orientation book, semi-notes, and case problems. Chapter V presents letters and opinions evaluating the project; and Chapter VI discusses the need for this course, the lack of books and teachers for such a program; the need for work analysts; and markets for this course.
