We are delighted to reveal that our partner organization Community Head Injury Resource Services of Toronto (CHIRS) has seen their Ethical Framework accepted as a leading practice and published by Health Standards Organization (HSO).
As documented in a recent letter of acceptance, it noted: “I am pleased to inform you that your Leading Practice submission “CHIRS Ethical Framework: Everyday Ethics in Acquired Brain Injury Community Support Services” has met all required criteria for acceptance as a Leading Practice.”
Health Standards Organization (HSO) and its affiliate, Accreditation Canada, have been identifying and publishing Leading Practices in the Leading Practices Library for over 15 years.
A Leading Practice is a practice carried out by a health and/or social service organization that has demonstrated a positive change, is people centred, safe and efficient.
The Leading Practices Library is a knowledge sharing resource of innovative practices that have been identified through a rigorous evaluation process, and shared with the public, policy makers and organizations that are seeking ways to improve the quality of health services for all.
Practices that are recognized as Leading Practices are published in the Leading Practices Library and also be advertised through HSO outreach events such as seminars, conferences, education materials, and accrediting bodies affiliated with HSO. CHIRS is now included as one of these!
We’d like to say congratulations to everybody who played a huge part in making CHIRS a first-class organization with very high quality assurance standards.
