The ability to properly assess documentation that meets the requirements of the PHAB Standards and Measures, is a key skill needed to prepare for the PHAB accreditation process. Excellent documentation forms the foundation for the site review and the ultimate decision on whether accreditation is granted. This session is an interactive time of both lecture and discussion. Learners will demonstrate the points and skills taught during the session through responses to questions using example documents.

Learners will discuss and explain the framework of the PHAB Standards and Measures and use them, along with example documents, to demonstrate the process of reviewing a document against the PHAB requirements. Learners will discuss a set of four questions as a method for document assessment. They will then use the four questions in demonstrating how to assess a sample document. Participants will be given immediate feedback on their knowledge of the documentation requirements, as this session leads to the final session of hands-on application.
