    Preparation
    For this assessment, you will assume the role of Care Coordinator Project Manager in your present organization or in an organization or setting you aspire to work in, are familiar with, or interested in.

Your project plan will serve as a model for addressing the care coordination needs of another population, or of an entire community, in Assessments 2 and 3.
    After completing your project plan, you will then develop a presentation of your plan to gain the support of administrative decision makers in the organization.
