Interesting and Inspiring Seminar on Accreditation in Health Care
On April 30 the Public-Private Platform cluster of Health Governance arranged a go-home meeting that examined the phenomenon of accreditation in general and upcoming practice in Denmark. The meeting was centered around a specific research project, called AKAIP, which evaluates accreditation in general practice.
At the seminar Professor and General Practitioner Frans Boch Waldorff discussed the design of accreditation in general practice as well as its promises and pitfalls with his presentation ‘How Is Accreditation Organized and How Is Evaluation Approached?’ Associate Professor Ivar Friis commented on the talk by presenting dominant theoretical perspectives on accreditation and the use of guidelines in healthcare.
According to Kirstine Zinck Pedersen, co-facilitator at the PPP cluster of Health Governance, the seminar's participants were a highly qualified audience who all studied quality in healthcare and the event gave occasion for stimulating discussions about the future of accreditation and quality assessment in Danish healthcare.
