Introduction to Primer (For New Aboriginal Health Services Clients)

Contact for price


On-site Session, 2 days

If your organization is new to accreditation, you may be preparing for the Accreditation Primer—designed especially for organizations that have little or no previous experience with accreditation. Introduction to Primer for Aboriginal Health Service Organizations introduces staff members and managers to the key steps in the Primer process and provides an opportunity to identify and prioritize areas for improvement and develop action plans. Additionally, your Accreditation Specialist will work with you to identify plans or frameworks you may wish to develop (ethics framework, client safety plan, or quality improvement plan).

Accreditation Canada is committed to providing accessible, quality services. Should you require special accommodations, please contact us by email at or by telephone at 613-738-3800 ext. 290.
