Perspectives on Accreditation

I recently spent a few days in Beijing at the invitation of the National Institute of Hospital Administration (NIHA), to attend a workshop on the Healthcare Accreditation in the Asia Pacific.

 

This was an opportunity to hear about the application of accreditation by different health economies in the Asian-Pacific Region.

Summary of my visit to HAS

In my time as an ISQua Emerging Leader, I have been learning through an approach based on knowledge transfer and skills exchange. It’s strange but great because I've become more aware of and have really experienced Brian Herbert’s quote: “The capacity to learn is a gift, the ability to learn is a skill and the willingness to learn is a choice.”

We congratulate the Deeble Institute and the authors, Mr Ryan Swiers and Dr Rebecca Haddock, on the recent publication of the evidence brief (#18) titled “Assessing the value of accreditation to health systems and organisations”.  As a group of professionals committed to the contribution of accreditation to quality improvement in healthcare, this brief is one of value and raises some key issues.
