Health Care Project Management
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.
