NAACLS will conduct a hybrid workshop titled, “Preparing for Successful Accreditation: When, Why, and How,” on Thursday, March 2, 2023, from 7:00am-12:00pm CT, in New Orleans, Louisiana, in concurrence with CLEC 2023.
This workshop focuses on the overall process of accreditation from start to finish. Emphasis will be placed on the preparation, organization, planning, writing, and submission process for the Self-Study. Recommendations will be provided on how to avoid common mistakes and citations. The presentation will also walk you through the preparation, planning, and hosting of the site visit.
Upon completion of this workshop, the participants should be able to:
- Summarize the overall accreditation process from preparation of the Self-Study through the site visit.
- Demonstrate how to use NAACLS resources (Standards, Compliance Guide, review forms, Discipline Lead Persons) to maximize success and avoid citations in the accreditation process.
- Examine documentation requirements for Standards II and IV.
- Develop a timeline and organizational strategies to keep your program “inspection ready” to decrease stress during the Self-Study and Site Visit processes.
