Accreditation Canada’s surveyor training model is accredited by ISQua and has been transferred to many accreditation bodies worldwide in the past 20 years. Our approach can be customized to existing standards and processes or delivered as is within the Qmentum Licensed Program. Survey methodologies have evolved over time in order to meet inter-reliability requirements and support health care organizations in their improvement journey. Our training programs cover key skills including criteria and guidelines interpretation, observation of health care operations, documentation review, interview skills, report writing and debriefing techniques.

Contact Us About Educating Healthcare Organizations

Regulators and assessment bodies do not always have the number of surveyors and auditors or specific expertise to conduct their assessments. Many of them solicit Accreditation Europe to provide our surveyors’ or auditors' time. This approach expedites the process and objectivity of survey results, especially for small health care systems. Regulators and accreditation bodies can contract Accreditation Europe to perform their surveys or include one or more surveyors as part of national survey teams.

Contact Us About Surveys and Co-Surveys

Often regulators and assesssment bodies rely on committees to render decisions. Accreditation Europe and its partners have significant experience with developing accreditation and licensing decision guidelines, reviewing survey results objectively, publishing decisions and managing appeals. Accreditation Canada’s Accreditation Decision Committee (ADC) can provide support to accreditation decision makers, as well as guide them in how to design decision guidelines to achieve a high level of quality and patient safety.
