Please join us for the first annual Accreditation Skills Building Workshop being held at the Sheraton Imperial Hotel and Convention Center in Durham, NC. The workshop’s target audience is Agency Accreditation Coordinators (AACs) or Back-up AACs, but will also be open to any other interested Health Department staff. The workshop will include plenary sessions, break-out sessions, and small group discussion sessions focused on accreditation skills-building and developing strategies for achieving success with accreditation. Examples of session topics may include personnel record organization, quick fixes for facility accessibility issues, how to electronically highlight and bookmark evidence, how to organize your agency team during site visits to best answer questions, and more. A draft agenda, registration, and hotel information will be available on May 1st.

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.
