Abstract

Proactive planning and managing moving from old to newly built hospitals, and the relocation process of patients for complex specialized units such as intensive care units, are necessary for both patient safety and staff well-being. This article provides an exemplar for how theory can be used to facilitate a positive relocation experience. Using change management theory, a systematic approach to cocreate implementation strategy among researchers and clinicians was critical to the success of this project.
