 3. maj 2004

Three University hospitals and the five psychiatric centres in the County of Copenhagen are preparing for accreditation in 2006. The engagement of clinical leaders and staff members is crucial. 

The objective of the study among clinical leaders and staff in hospitals and psychiatric settings was to asses:

  • Acknowledgement of quality problems in specific areas  related to the patient pathways
  • Expectations to accreditation as a tool for quality  improvement
  • Knowledge about accreditation and the Danish Quality  Model (the upcoming national accreditation program)
  • Advices concerning the further planning.
