Product Description

The Official Newsletter of The Joint Commission 
The Joint Commission Perspectives is your primary source for changes to accreditation and certification requirements and Joint Commission initiatives.
 
Publication in Perspectives is considered official notification of such changes and updates to Joint Commission-accredited and -certified organizations. Therefore, it is primarily intended for staff who are responsible for accreditation-and/or certification-related activities and performance improvement, administration leaders, nurse leaders, and physician leaders in all health care settings.  
 
In addition to timely coverage of standards and the survey/review process changes, informative regular features provide expert direction and commentary. Here’s some of what you’ll gain from Perspectives:
  • In Sight allows you to monitor changes to standards, survey and review processes, and key initiatives before they are approved, so you are always in-the-know about what’s happening at The Joint Commission.  See what’s In Development, In Field Review, and Approved.
  • Consistent Interpretation pairs actual Joint Commission surveyor observations on specific accreditation requirements with guidance from the Standards Interpretation Group to support your compliance efforts. Learn what surveyors are seeing and how to address those challenging compliance issues.
  • Sentinel Event Alert showcases the latest Sentinel Event Alert from The Joint Commission.  Learn about pressing risks to patient safety, and get risk-reduction strategies and other recommendations to improve care.
  • Joint Commission Requirements are articles that highlight updates, revisions, and changes to Joint Commission accreditation and certification standards, processes, and initiatives. See what is now required, and get the information you need to comply in your organization.  Look for the Joint Commission Requirements gold seal next to these articles.  Also, jump to a special Joint Commission Requirements page, your complete online source for  standards revisions published in Perspectives since your accreditation manual was last issued or updated. Quickly and easily find all recent standards revisions affecting your organization here, in one place.
