Deafblind Services

In the Deafblind Services sector, the FOCUS Quality Improvement and Accreditation Program prioritizes internal organizational alignment and transparency as a way to create a culture of continuous learning and improvement that will translate into more than just a “check” on your annual ministry inspection – it will help you become the best organization possible.

Accreditation can help you improve your quality of services and meet ministry standards. FOCUS offers an alternative to the medical model for accreditation, taking a more human-centric approach that evaluates the qualitative and quantitative aspects of your services.

For organizations working in the Deafblind Services sector, the FOCUS Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program will help you identify where you can qualitatively improve your services, and provide validation of your existing practices through interviews with the people who use your services as well as internal and external stakeholders.

By participating in the FOCUS Quality Improvement and Accreditation Program, you’ll create a culture of transparency, openness and continuous improvement that goes beyond compliance – it simply becomes a part of what you do every day. The accreditation process is positive, uplifting and inclusive – see what other organizations in the Deafblind Services sector have to say:

“Accreditation has allowed DeafBlind Ontario Services’ sustained commitment to quality assurance, accountability and continuous improvement to shine throughout the sector.  DeafBlind Ontario Services was proud to be the first organization in Ontario providing services to people who are deafblind to become accredited in 2012.  To demonstrate our sustained commitment to excellence, DeafBlind Ontario Services achieved its second 4-year accreditation with FOCUS in 2016 – the first Ontario organization providing Intervenor Services to be reaccredited.”
