Accreditation methodology

Sharing and improving clinical service accreditation methodologies

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 learnt from their development and implementation
• To develop a set of recommendations to support the delivery of work stream 6
• To develop a central repository of information with links to information
