Slide 23

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

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

As a Team, Answer the Following Questions

  • Is our project scope manageable?
  • Do we have PI structure including oversight steering committee; project champion; DA; pharmacist; team members; team leader; scheduled dates, times, and resources needed for the meetings?
  • Have we alerted ad hoc resources such as finance, medical records, IT, education dept, etc., as needed?
  • What is missing and who will be responsible?


This slide notes questions you will want to address. Consider what you have heard and identify any existing gaps in your process. Without moving into a problem-solving mode, chart your gaps on a flip chart that you will call your "parking lot." The parking lot will remind you of tasks or items that need to be completed after you finish Module 1.
