Using a seven-step process, the guide provides a practical approach that can be easily adapted and used for a wide range of BC Renal initiatives or projects.
This standardized approach enables BC Renal to consistently and effectively track progress and report successes and challenges to the network.

BC Renal's 7-Step Process for Project Planning and Evaluation (see Figure 1) aligns with quality improvement processes and is embedded in the project life cycle.
- Steps 1 through 3 focus on overall project planning with consideration of evaluation.
- Step 4 delves into evaluation planning once the project has been defined with key stakeholder input.
- Steps 5 through 7 focus on implementation as well as use and communication of evaluation results.
The development of the guide was supported by a project advisory group and informed by:
- a review of Canadian and international frameworks and models
- stakeholder consultations
- a review of existing processes and documents within BC Renal.
