Used by leading hospitals, TWI Institute's teachings now offered for everyone in video and print.
SYRACUSE, N.Y., March 19, 2020 /CNW/ -- With the rapidly increasing concern over the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the TWI Institute has issued a video on the clinically sanctioned method of handwashing that it teaches hospital staff, as well as an instructional flyer that can be used at home with a "refrigerator magnet" or at the office tacked to a bulletin board, and a pocket-size reminder card on how people and families can protect themselves from infections in ways that may not ordinarily come to mind.
The video, flyer and pocket card can be accessed at https://infectionprotection.twi-institute.com .
Hospitals and medical facilities have relied on the TWI Institute to teach frontline staff on care methods, such as handwashing and intravenous administration, that reduce infections and other related patient care risks. TWI, the method that TWI Institute uses, is more memorable and more effective because it focuses not only on "what" someone should do and "how," but also on the importance of "why" they should do it. The "why" is often missing in other training or instructional plans.
As an example, the handwashing video emphasizes the importance of washing one's thumb separately from the rest of the hand. The "why" is because people use their thumb so often and in so many ways, that the risk of germs being present or transferred is very high.
Over many years, TWI has proven itself to be a teaching and learning method that yields extraordinary results in healthcare, manufacturing and services businesses. The TWI Institute recognized that its approach to teaching TWI could help individuals and families be safer every day in the face of threats from infections.
TWI originated in the United States early in World War II and was largely responsible for the huge volume of materials needed by the armed services. After the War, Americans brought TWI to Japan to rebuild its manufacturing. TWI became the foundation for the Toyota Production System (TPS), a model for contemporary manufacturing.
TWI Institute uses the authentic TWI programs to train people to be more productive and satisfied on the job. Clients include Coca-Cola, LEGO, BMW, Merck and many others. More information is available at: www.twi-institute.com .
