Accreditation News
Training Opportunity: Accreditation 101: Team Based Training

Accreditation 101: Team Based Training is a three-hour “accreditation team” training being offered via local AHEC Request. The audience for this training are staff serving on an agency accreditation team who need basic knowledge of the accreditation process. There is a minimum requirement of 15-20 participants at each training, so agencies may want to consider partnering with an adjacent health department to offer the training. If you are interested in hosting the training, contact your AHEC Public Health Education Program contact and request technical assistance services for NC Local Health Department Accreditation through UNC Gillings School of Public Health.  If you have any questions about this training, please contact NCLHDaccreditation@unc.edu.

New Materials Available
Upcoming NCLHDA Materials Update Webinar

Based on input from the Accreditation 2.0 Committee and LHD trainings this summer, the NCLHDA Board approved changes to the HDSAI and HDSAI Interpretation Document at their meeting on 12.9.16. These changes have been released and are effective as of January 1, 2017. These changes do NOT apply at this time to counties with site visits this January/February/March of 2017.

Like the last Materials revision, changes have been made in a color -- green this time -- and a Summary of Changes is also available. Additionally, we will host a webinar for all LHDs on January 26th  from 2:00-3:30. Access information will be sent out through the AAC and Health Director listserv in mid-January. Note that we only have 100 lines. Please plan accordingly so that multiple staff can view in one location. The webinar will be archived and posted here for later viewing.
