Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Project management is a process employed by many disciplines and enterprises engaged in high-stakes, complex work. It is a great fit for the challenges of knowledge translation and practice innovation when combined with the frameworks and methods used for evidence-based practice. This chapter introduces the phases of project management together with a set of tools and processes that can be used to enhance both the strength of success and the probability of its attainment by teams and team leaders engaged in the work of translation. Project management is a strategy with great potential to facilitate translation science. This chapter uses a case study based on a project designed to reduce exposure to hazardous medication to illustrate the project-planning process and to provide examples of the ways the various tools can be used for planning, communicating with stakeholders, and achieving fidelity to the evidence.
