National Child & Youth Healthcare Standards
MOU with Accreditation Canada
As a national organization representing health professionals and organizations across the continuum of care, CAPHC is uniquely positioned to influence system-wide change at the national level by advocating for child and youth health service delivery at key and influential tables. In addition, because a large part of CAPHC’s membership is at the grass roots level, we are also able to effect change at the point of service delivery.
CAPHC has developed a Memorandum of Understanding with Accreditation Canada to collaborate on the development of national standards of care for children and youth as part of a national quality improvement and accreditation process.
Accreditation Canada is a non-profit and independent organization that provides national and international health and social service organizations with a voluntary, external peer review to assess the quality of their services. CCHSA's guidance has been helping organizations strive for excellence for close to 50 years.
