The webinar will start with a review of key resources from NCLHDA. Then, PHAB representatives will discuss the Pathways Recognition Program https://phaboard.org/pathways/, a new offering designed for small, rural, and under-resourced health departments who are not ready for full PHAB accreditation.

Finally, NCLHDA will introduce an interactive platform for you to share questions and feedback on programmatic changes to inform future webinar resources.

Reading the Script and Learning the Lines: A Deep Dive into the HDSAI Interpretation Document Revisions
Webinar. Actors tend to rely on “through lines” to learn their lines; they focus on learning the intent behind the words to help them remember. This webinar will go through the revisions that were made to the HDSAI Interpretation document. We will share the intent behind the revisions and how to use the new features to better understand the requirements and to increase efficiency in submitting evidence.
Action: Strategically Moving Forward.
Webinar. The Accreditation Program has undertaken an in-depth strategic planning process with feedback from national accrediting organizations, professionals from other states, NCLHD Accreditation Board Members, and many of you from across North Carolina at both the state and local levels. The information gathered has informed a strategic direction for the NCLHD Accreditation Program. Learn the 2021-2025 goals for the NCLHD Accreditation Program and how they will benefit local health departments.
We will also release the revised 2022 HDSAI Interpretation Document and the 2020/2021 Retrospective HDSAI. Learn about the revisions and the plan for implementing the changes. There is no cost to attend; however, registration is required.
Accreditation: Behind the Scenes
Accreditation is a team effort, not just locally – it takes a team to administer the program from the state’s program level as well. Learn who is “behind the scenes” of the accreditation program at the North Carolina Institute for Public Health. From paying the bills, to organizing site visits, to ensuring our annual report is something people will actually want to view, meet the team whose faces you don’t typically get to see, but whose work is critical to the success of the program. Participants will be able to ask questions during the webinar and will be able to submit questions ahead of time.
We will also be releasing the results of the Driving the Future Report specific to accreditation team members. Learn what the greatest training needs identified by local accreditation teams are and how the accreditation program is planning to meet those needs.
