This interactive group forum is open to all CAAS accredited agencies, staff, CAAS site reviewers and applicant agencies. This mixed group forum will review the existing CAAS standards and focus on the standards most often misunderstood or misinterpreted and will address the challenges faced by both agency personnel and site reviewers when documenting compliance as well as reviewing best practices.
Participants can learn from the experiences of accredited agencies and experienced site reviewers. Members from the CAAS Panel of Commissioners will be available to discuss the panel process and get feedback from participants. We will also discuss the standard revision process, seek input from the group on standard suggestions and recommendations, and discuss how new standards are created, approved, published and how accredited agencies will transition from version 3.0 to the new 4.0 standards when released.
Note: The CAAS Forum is at the same location as the American Ambulance Association’s Conference.
