Continuing Training Accreditation

The training received by health professionals is a key element for the development of an appropriate attention to the health of citizens.

Quality healthcare requires quality training.

That is why, within the dimensions that are the subject of their certification work, ACSA also includes continuing training, i.e. the type of training health professionals receive in the scope of their job functions.

ACSA is the responsible body in Andalucía for evaluating the quality of the different elements involved in the design of any activity and training programme for the different health jobs. The Consejería de Salud de la Junta de Andalucía (in English, Health Department of the Regional Government of Andalucía) is the accrediting body. Since its inception in 2003, ACSA has accredited more than 32,200 actions related to clinical practice, health management, public health, research, teaching and quality.

Inicio del proceso

Phase 1 Beginning of the Process

Autoevaluación

Phase 2 Application/Self-assessment

The provider’s person/s in charge will proceed to complete the application and provide all the information related to the design of a given activity or training programme according to quality criteria. In the case of programmes, reflection is made on what we do well (positive evidence) and on areas for improvement. This is called ‘Self-Assessment Phase’.

Phase 3 Assessment

The team of surveyors assesses the quality of the design of the activity or programme described in the previous phase, as well as the adequacy and interrelation between its components. To do this, it takes into account the parameters established by the Continuing Education Commission and quality criteria developed in Andalucía. The result of the assessment is summarised by a parameter called qualitative component.
