Is your organization considering CARF accreditation? If yes, we understand the reasons to pursue accreditation can be multifaceted… maybe it’s a state requirement or all your competitors are already CARF accredited. Regardless of the reason, it is essential to prepare for CARF in a multifaceted process, too. Exploring your mission or purpose, your community connections and the organizational structure are just some of the aspects you’ll need review. Today’s CARF Standards speak to all of this and more.
So how do you get started…first get an up-to-date CARF Standards manual. We can assure you the initial investment of a couple hundred dollars is very important. CARF responds to the industry and refines these standards annually to ensure the person served is provided with quality effective care.
Next, don’t panic! Although the manuals are large- rarely do organizations have to meet everything in the book.
Read a little bit and remember, you can always call CARF. The Resource Specialists are happy to explain the standards and processes…
