Change Management in Healthcare
This course is designed for healthcare project managers (PMs) or clinical project leads with limited formal background in change management fundamentals. Throughout the course modules, you will receive an introduction to how people navigate change and an introduction to the change management process by reviewing some popular theories and models of change. We will also cover an overview of the life cycle of a project. Finally, we'll combine both change management principles and the project life cycle by reviewing some common barriers to change in healthcare projects throughout each stage of the project life cycle and allow time to apply the change management principles you just learned to each.
Course Price: $24.99 USD
The goal of this course is to provide you with lessons learned, 'what I wish I had knowns', and basic tools to set you up for successfully implementing change at your organizations!
After 13 years of working as a physical therapist in various settings and organizations, course creator Stephanie Miller realized there was often a disconnect between leadership's visions and what was actually being implemented in the field. This disconnect led to frustrations on all ends. Instead of giving up, she was inspired to find an answer. From her perspective, the missing link was formal project management. She started studying the topic, received her certification, and after 15 years as a practicing clinician, transitioned into healthcare project management. Leaving the field wasn't easy for her, but the gift of making the lives of my fellow clinicians easier has made it all worth it!
