Chapter 8 – A Health Check for the service: ACCHO approaches to accreditation
This chapter describes ACCHO ways of working in relation to accreditation. Accreditation is the formal process that ACCHOs and other health organisations go through to demonstrate they meet national Standards of practice. To conduct their day to day business as a health service, ACCHOs must have clinic accreditation. Those that offer extended services (e.g. aged care, disability services, mental health, dental, early childhood education) have additional accreditation requirements.
The content within this chapter was based upon an in-depth case study with a metro ACCHO, further refined with input from the CREATE Leadership Group, and strengthened with additional learnings from other ACCHO case studies.
