Accreditation standards undergo review approximately every 5 years to ensure continued effectiveness and relevance in contemporary education and health care environments.
Central to ANMAC’s standards development and review process is wide ranging consultation with our stakeholders. ANMAC employs a number of strategies to facilitate the required consultation, which may include an initial survey, consultation papers and consultation forums. ANMAC can vary the consultation strategies used in each review. The flowchart below provides an example of the ANMAC accreditation standard review and development process that is guided by the Ahpra Procedures for the development of accreditation standards.
