Accreditation

Recommendation 10

National governments should introduce accreditation of health professional education where it does not exist and strengthen it where it does exist.

Quality of the evidence: Low

Strength of the recommendation: Strong

In spite of the low quality of the evidence, the panel decided to issue a strong recommendation because a very high value was placed on an uncertain but potentially important impact on both the quality and relevance of the health workforce.

Key considerations:

  • Strengthen existing health professional accreditation
  • accreditation must be based on standards
  • it must be supported by legislation
  • it should be done independently
  • the process should be transparent
  • the system and process should be periodically evaluated.
