Implementing Change Despite Resistance (graded)
Change can be difficult to implement. Now that you are almost finished with your change project if you were to implement your project in your clinical practice what type of resistance do you expect from staff? List at least three ways that you can lessen the resistance you may encounter to help ensure the success of your project.
