ABC publishes accreditation guide

The American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics has added a resource tool. The ABC Facility Accreditation Standards Compliance Guide provides useful easy-to-comprehend resources to guide facility owners through the accreditation process.

The no-cost guide is available only to current ABC accredited facilities and those that have applied for accreditation. It details 141 facility accreditation standards and offers tips and suggestions for compliance. The guide also clarifies expectations of the standard, offers examples of compliance, and, in many cases, refers the facility owner to additional resources.

To access the publication, ABC accredited facility owners can log in to the ABC website, www.abcop.org. The online publication is located on the Accreditation home page under “Accredited Facility Tools.”
