Health Care Project Management: the Intersection of Strategy, People, and Process
Improve your Operational Effectiveness with Health Care Project Management Skills
In health care, clinical and administrative staff with no formal training in project management often end up leading project teams. These individuals may be subject matter experts, but likely have only a passing knowledge of the science of improvement. To move from ideas to results, these project leaders need formal training in project management.
Health Care Project Management provides the training health care professionals need to improve the quality of care at their organization through projects delivered on time and within budget.
This course equips you with both the tools and strategies to effectively manage projects in any health care organization. In just a few days, participants will greatly improve their ability to provide focused and strategic leadership to their current and future projects.
The program uses experiential activities and case studies to weave together the topics of project management, creating and managing teams, delegation, motivation, conflict resolution, and negotiation to generate maximum results.
This is the course to take to master the “people side” of project management.
- Gain experience with the steps involved in the project management process and adapt the stages to address the nuances within a variety of health care settings
- Use case study exploration to examine how project management techniques can be leveraged as process improvement tools
- Learn and practice strategies to navigate the interpersonal dynamics that emerge between and among the roles of clinical and administrative leaders/staff with specific focus on managing conflict and successful negotiation as it pertains to the project management arena
- Identify and examine methods that maximize communication among audiences with a stake in project outcomes
