Clinical Service Accreditation (CSA): A map of clinical services for accreditation schemes

Guidance Published: Author: HQIP

Part three of six clinical service accreditation resources produced by the former Clinical Service Accreditation Alliance (CSAA).

The aim of this particular guidance is to deliver a map of clinical services for the purposes of accreditation schemes.

Its key aims and objectives are to:

• Consider how to incorporate primary, secondary and community care services into the mapping exercise
• Consider whether it would be possible to accredit services from a patient pathway perspective and not just a traditional clinical team perspective
• Develop and test criteria for determining the scope of accreditation schemes
• Develop and test criteria to prioritise the establishment of new accreditation schemes
