MED 101: Preparing for Successful Accreditation in Medical Rehabilitation


This engaging two-day session provides a solid foundation for organizations seeking CARF accreditation. Participants will gain valuable insight into the accreditation process as well as helpful information in preparing for a survey and how to avoid the pitfalls some organizations may experience on their survey.

This comprehensive and interactive training session provides the perfect forum to assimilate the ASPIRE to Excellence® quality framework. In addition, we will highlight practical examples of demonstrating conformance to the standards as well as effective business management and service delivery practice. All areas in the 2013 Medical Rehabilitation Standards Manual will be covered.

Participants will be given the opportunity to discuss and receive "hands-on" support from training faculty regarding the development and implementation of plans, policies, and procedures needed to demonstrate organizational conformance to the standards. Additional emphasis will be placed on areas where organizations or personnel new to CARF most often need guidance. A link will be provided to those attending the training to access valuable examples, aids, and resources to use in preparing for a survey.

Session topics include:

  • The CARF accreditation process and what happens during a survey.

  • Helpful tips in preparing for your CARF survey.

  • A review of the 2013 standards, including the ASPIRE to Excellence quality framework, designed to provide a logical, action-oriented approach to quality improvement.

  • A review of program standards for medical rehabilitation programs.

  • Frequently cited standards.

This session is highly recommended for any first-time organization preparing for the accreditation survey process, organizational contacts new to the CARF accreditation process, or those who need a quick update and refresher course.
