Project RED: Module 1: Preparing to Redesign Your Discharge Program

Provides a four-module training program to help hospitals implement Project RED.

Project Team Leader

  • Becomes educated in PI tools.
  • Is a competent and confident facilitator.
  • Is objective and neutral to the process.
  • Facilitates an organized plan for the team.
  • Is results focused.


Now let's talk about specific roles on the project team and within the Project RED intervention. Selecting a project leader who understands project management, group dynamics, facilitation techniques, objectivity, PI tools and techniques, and overall positive framing will be a critical success factor. The project leader will design agendas for each meeting, maintain established meeting structure, use ground rules for group focus, and keep the team energized and committed to the process. The "Project Leader Facilitation Guide" is a useful resource for Project RED team leaders.
