Project management is recognised as a core competency across health and community services environments, yet it can be challenging for new project staff and practitioners to balance the needs of stakeholders and ensure the best outcome for everyone involved.

This wholly revised edition of Project Management in Health and Community Services presents the tools and techniques for effective practice, offering practical problem-solving strategies for managing projects based on real-life scenarios. The expert authors use case studies and examples from the field to illustrate topics such as the project life cycle, project planning, execution and evaluation, risk management, handling change and building effective teams. This edition also features a new chapter on the importance of incorporating evaluation into project design and implementation, and how evaluation can impact on future project design and development.

Written by highly experienced authors and underpinned by the latest research, this is an essential resource for anyone studying or working in health and community services.
