Project Planning and Management: A Guide for Nurses and Interprofessional Teams, Fourth Edition provides the framework, knowledge, and skills to successfully plan and implement quality improvement projects and assess their sustainability. These skills are a crucial part of healthcare education programs and ongoing healthcare innovation. Because students and clinicians often struggle with taking an idea from the planning phase to execution and assessment, this text is the perfect how-to guide.
The Fourth Edition has been updated to focus on advancing the knowledge and collaboration among interprofessional teams. The authors reinforce these ideas with new content related to budget strategies, cost calculations, and big data as well as emphasizing the value of project sustainability.
