A General Overview of Public Health Accreditation. Year Developed: 2011. Source: Public Health Accreditation Board. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Online Course. Level: Introductory. Length: 45 minutes.

Annotation: This module provides an overview of the entire public health department accreditation process.

Learning Objectives: • Describe the mission and purpose of PHAB. • Describe why accreditation is important. • List the benefits of accreditation. • Identify basic concepts of the accreditation process. • State the number of domains in the PHAB standards and measures.
