Designed to Change

The provider generates activities/educational interventions that are designed to change competence, performance, or patient outcomes as described in its mission statement. (formerly Criterion 3)


In fulfillment of its mission, and as a next step in the planning process, the accredited provider designs its education to change learners’ strategies/skills (i.e., competence), and/or what learners actually do in practice (i.e., performance), and/or the impact on the patient or on the care delivered (i.e., patient outcomes).
