Education Services and Technical Assistance
PHAB is available to provide technical assistance on issues involving: the accreditation process; required forms; meaning of terms used; interpretation of the standards, measures, and documentation guidance; fact sheets and talking points; and access to PHAB materials and forms.
PHAB is also responsible for orienting and training future applicants on the application process and the standards and measures that is thorough and appropriate for all applicants. All education provided will be the same for all participants.
As fact sheets and other talking points are developed, you will find them posted here. These fact sheets will be one or two pages that can be used to inform and educate staff, stakeholders, governance and the public about PHAB accreditation. They will give a good understanding about the process while promoting participation.
PHAB may also develop specific training sessions on components of the bundles of training described in the PHAB Education Services flyer. For example: PHAB may provide training specifically on the selection, preparation, and uploading of documentation; or PHAB may develop a specific training session on the role and functions of the Accreditation Coordinator and how they should organize and manage their Accreditation Team. These educational offerings will be publicized through the PHAB website and e-newsletter. PHAB will continue to provide speakers and exhibits for conferences, as requested.
PHAB will not provide customized training for individual applicants or training to individual health departments on preparing for accreditation (such as how to develop and complete the pre-requisites; how to conduct any early “self-assessment” to prepare for accreditation; how to develop a QI plan, etc.).
