"The Association's Deeble Institute has released a Health Policy Research Evidence Brief which aims to assess the value of accreditation to health service organizations. The brief calls for a better understanding of the benefits of accreditation to health services. While it focuses on the way accreditation is implemented in Australian health services, the topic is very relevant for a large number of countries' health systems around the world that have embedded accreditation processes.

The Australian Healthcare and Hospitals Association (AHHA) media release is available at Accreditation and culture usually go hand-in-hand in health organisations.

To view the brief, click on "Assessing the value of accreditation to health systems and organisations".
