The BCCPA is pleased to provide our members with access to exclusive training workshops focused on the continuing care sector.

Workshop: CARF’s Consultative Approach to Continuing Care Accreditation

Accreditation provides a path to enhancing the quality of services in BC’s continuing care sector. CARF’s, well-established, consultative accreditation process supports organizations in making improvements to business practices, care processes and service provision with the goal of enhancing the lives of the people served.

This interactive workshop will provide participants with an understanding of their organization’s readiness to pursue accreditation, and will provide an overview of:

  • CARF as an aging services accreditation option in BC
  • CARF’s mission, vision, values and the concept of ‘moral ownership’
  • The field-driven standards for aging services
  • Resources and supports available
  • The consultative accreditation process
  • The value and outcomes of CARF accreditation
  • The fees and time investment associated with CARF accreditation

If you’ve ever wondered whether accreditation could benefit your organization, or if you would be interested in learning more about a consultative, non-prescriptive accreditation option, this workshop is for you! This complimentary workshop is open to BCCPA members only.

When: Friday April 21st 2017
Where: M100 Meeting Room | Metrotower 1 | 4710 Kingsway | Burnaby
Time:  9:00 am – 12:00 pm

About CARF standards

CARF’s standards are field driven. Working with consumers, providers, and funders, international consensus standards have been created and maintained to promote quality, value and optimal outcomes of services. Our aging services standards, including those tailored to residential care, assisted living, supportive housing, home support, and adult day services settings, have been found to be highly relevant to this sector across Canada.
