ANAB and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) will hold a free webinar to mark World Accreditation Day 2015 on June 9.
World Accreditation Day is a global initiative established by the International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) to raise awareness of the value of accreditation. Each year on June 9, IAF and ILAC invite interested parties around the world to mark the occasion with celebrations that honor and communicate the role accreditation plays in the global industry, services, and trade.
This year's theme is "Accreditation: Supporting the Delivery of Health and Social Care." Accreditation is a key tool for health and social care providers, from the accredited certification of healthcare providers and medical devices, to the accreditation of medical testing laboratories and diagnostic imaging services, to the inspection of social care providers.
The two-hour ANAB-ANSI webinar, which will start at 2:00 pm EDT on Tuesday, June 9, will feature the following speakers:
Speakers will discuss how accreditation facilitates continuous improvement, promotes consumer confidence, and supports the delivery of health and social care, among other topics. Webinar participants will have the opportunity to participate in a question-and-answer session following the panel discussion.
