    CARF 101: Preparing for Successful Accreditation

    Achieving CARF accreditation requires a commitment to excellence.

    Presented by CARF staff, CARF 101s are intended for a variety of audiences, including organizations that are:

    • Exploring CARF accreditation.
    • Preparing for their first CARF survey.
    • Needing a refresher prior to a CARF resurvey.

    Topics vary depending on the audience and may include:

    • An overview of the accreditation process, including an examination of the value of accreditation for organizations, consumers, and the public.
    • An overview of CARF standards, including the ASPIRE to Excellence® quality framework, which provides a logical and action-oriented approach to continuous quality improvement.
    • Examples of conformance to the CARF standards, including discussion of the most commonly missed standards.

    CARF 101s are presented in different formats depending on which accreditation area your programs fall under.

    Onsite Training Sessions

    The onsite training consists of comprehensive and engaging two-day training sessions designed to help organizations prepare for successful accreditation.

    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. Participants will have the opportunity to consult with the faculty one-on-one and participate in break-out sessions with other attendees.

  • In their own words:

  • The session on CARF accreditation standards was invigorating, and provided me with the energy, motivation, and voice to influence change. The session simplified the process and was fluid and integrative concerning day-to-day activities. I am pleased to hear that accreditation is not another “add on”, and supports the person-centered philosophy.
