Figure 2 we see that over the six years to 2015/16 the number of participants grew to such a volume that it could no longer be easily managed by the treffpunkt sprachen organization team. Compared to the 2,299 students in 2005/06, a total of 5,897 individuals enrolled in language courses in academic year 2015/16. This increase of 156.5% very clearly demonstrates the extremely great demand for language courses.

The article discusses the quality improvement concept in terms of companies’ competitiveness and its operations. The research object is a production company located in Silesia province. We analyzed the quality problems occurring in the company based on the selected quality management tools: Ishikawa diagram and the Pareto-Lorenz. It was presented and discussed basic types of waste occurring in the enterprise. It was proposed improvement actions and highlights the importance of immaterial resources - the company's workers.

therefore aimed to develop a clinical pathway for managing hypocalcemia after total thyroidectomy in a standardized manner. The goals were to reduce the use of IV calcium gluconate, incidence of hypocalcemia, and length of stay (LOS). The pathway was carried out in the context of a quality improvement (QI) project using the Plan-Do-Study-Act (PDSA) model. Materials and methods Baseline measurements: To understand the management practices and variability, a retrospective chart review was performed on patients who underwent TT at our institution in 2017. Data extracted

prevent disability in children with CH. Despite a plethora of peer-reviewed literature detailing management of CH, there remains a population of children who are lost to follow-up and thus not receiving optimal medical care. A sentinel case of a child with known CH lost to follow-up for 7 years illustrates an example of this ambulatory, serious safety event. The purpose of this manuscript is to present the sentinel case and describe a quality improvement (QI) initiative to prevent future loss to follow-up through identification of at-risk CH patients.

additional contribution to risk management in the preanalytical phase and is a synopsis of the lectures of the 2nd European Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine (EFLM)-Becton Dickinson (BD) European Conference on Preanalytical Phase meeting entitled “Preanalytical quality improvement: in quality we trust” (Zagreb, 1–2 March 2013) ( ). The leading topics that will be discussed include quality indicators for the preanalytical phase, insights about phlebotomy practices including collection of suitable samples for

Introduction The Norwegian Quality Improvement of Primary Care Laboratories (Noklus) was established in 1992 because it had been shown that point-of-care (POC) laboratory examinations were performed with poor analytical quality [ 1 , 2 ]. The aim of the organization was to ensure that all POC medical laboratory examinations are ordered, performed and interpreted correctly and in accordance with the patients’ needs for investigation, treatment and follow-up. After 25 years with focus on the primary healthcare laboratories, Noklus merged in 2017 with the

efficacy and safety. The primary objective of this multi-intervention quality improvement (QI) project was to reduce the incidence of hypothermia in preterm infants on admission to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) by 20%, compared with the previous two periods. The secondary objectives were to ascertain if this initiative was associated with a beneficial effect on morbidities and mortality in this population. Study design Hutzel Women’s Hospital is an urban, academic women’s hospital with a 55-bed level 3 inborn NICU and special care nursery along with a high
