Book Description: Introducing a new accreditation program from Joint Commission International! Joint Commission International Accreditation Standards for the Care Continuum presents brand-new accreditation standards for international health care organizations providing care to chronic care patients, rehabilitation patients, and patients at the end of life either at home or in institutional settings. This easy-to-use manual, written in easy-to-understand English, includes standards and scoring information as well as accreditation policies and procedures. These international consensus standards were developed and reviewed by an international task force and were tested in mock surveys in international health care organizations. These new standards meet a growing demand for an effective evaluation of patient care services other than acute care and consider country-specific conditions and cultural issues.
