ACCE Educational Webinar Series Clinical Engineering Project Management 101
Technical Project Management is traditionally taught with from an IT process perspective. While the typical IT project management (PM) approach is very robust it can differ from a Clinical Engineering PM approach. As the scope of project management expands, especially when involving clinical settings and medical departments, there are advantages to including a Clinical Engineering PM approach. This course will explore both IT and CE PM approaches and focus on the differences between the two. It will demonstrate how the principles and fundamentals of clinical engineering management can be scaled to larger and more complex projects with an outcome that benefits the patient and staff.
