Upcoming Accreditation Canada Visit (Sequence 2) – May 3rd – May 5th 2023

Next week, healthcare leaders from across the country, who serve as surveyors on behalf of Accreditation Canada will be touring Island Health sites within the Population and Public Health Portfolio. These surveyors will spend time interacting with Island Health staff, physicians, leaders, clients, and community partners to gain a better understanding of our systems of care and service delivery. The standards being assessed are:

It is a wonderful opportunity to showcase the great work happening here every day and receive feedback on what we see as our strengths, gaps and improvement planning needs. Island Health is lucky enough to welcome back two of the surveyors we hosted in our Sequence 1 Fall 2022 visit, Jeanette Edwards and Dalyce Cruikshank.
