Critical Access Hospital Quality Improvement Project Policy and Procedure Workshop

Writing policies and procedures is very time consuming and can be quite complicated. In healthcare it is customary to share these items with other facilities as a way to collaborate and help everyone “work smarter, not harder”. How do you know a policy is a good policy? What is the difference between a policy and a procedure? How do you create one from scratch?

Join us for the first Policy & Procedure workshop for Critical Access Hospitals! This workshop is possible through the FORHP Flex program administered through the State Office of Rural Health. In this one-day workshop we will walk through the process of policy and procedure development. Hands on activities will help reinforce the learning process and provide a foundation that can be taken back and put into practice. Things we will cover:

  • Policy vs Procedure – what’s the difference?
  • Legal purpose to policies and procedures
  • Steps to creating policy: planning, analyzing, researching, writing
  • Policy for your process to develop and approve policy
  • Components of a policy
  • Supporting documents
  • How to vet a shared policy
