About this book
Project Management for Healthcare Informatics provides an explanation of the project management process tailored for nurses through its use of real clinical examples. In the first chapters, the project management process will be described in detail along with its relationship to the phases of the project life cycle. The tools available to successfully complete each phase of the project management process and move along the project life cycle will be included. The rest of the book will be devoted to discussion on how to apply these principles in the day-to-day work of the nurse—whether manager, staff nurse, educator, researcher, or informatician. Case studies and project examples will comprise the majority of material in these chapters.
