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:
“At DeafBlind Ontario Services, our commitment to providing a high quality of life for people with deafblindness is ingrained in our values. We are proud to be re-accredited for the third time and to receive the elite Seal of Sustainability, and the first deafblind organization to do so. The accreditation process itself was clear, well structured and collaborative. Accreditation allows us to be measured by an unbiased, respected third party organization. This demonstrates to our families, funders, community partners, and the people we support, that we are dedicated to high quality service provision and accountability It’s also something that sets us apart in our field.”
