Hot off the Press! New Accreditation Coordinator Handbook Now Available 

A new Accreditation Coordinator Handbook is now available for free download on PHAB's website, and will be available for purchase through PHAB's online store later this week. The Handbook describes the accreditation process and the roles and responsibilities of the Accreditation Coordinator for each step of the process. It includes information about departments' internal processes and tips for preparing accreditation documentation.

 

The Accreditation Coordinator is the health department's staff member who is responsible for coordinating the accreditation process within the department. PHAB requires every health department to have a designated Accreditation Coordinator. Health departments rely heavily on their Accreditation Coordinator to lead the health department's accreditation efforts. The Accreditation Coordinator's effectiveness is critical to the health department's success in achieving accreditation.

 

The Handbook is a companion document to the Guide to National Public Health Department Initial Accreditation and the PHAB Standards and Measures. The health department must refer to the Guide to National Public Health Department Initial Accreditation for information about the official initial accreditation process, and must refer to the PHAB Standards and Measures for information about the official requirements for receipt of initial accreditation.
