Clinical Service Accreditation (CSA): Accreditation methodology
Published: 01 Nov 2016
Part two of six clinical service accreditation resources produced by members of the former Clinical Service Accreditation Alliance (CSAA).
This report is concerned with seeking continuous improvement in the quality of accreditation schemes by drawing together methodologies and key learning from new and emerging accreditation schemes, as well as peer review schemes. While much expertise and knowledge exists around clinical service accreditation, little of this is readily accessible for new schemes.
The objectives of this work stream are:
To identify and map current methodologies recommending good practice from current and emerging clinical accreditation schemes and peer review schemes
To map new and emerging accreditation schemes and gather lessons learned from their development and implementation
