Accreditation Standards Laboratory Medicine

Diagnostic Accreditation Program accreditation standards are evidence-based, outcome-focused and aligned to the principles of continuous quality improvement.  The accreditation standards are comprehensive and address the medical, technical and management aspects of service delivery.
The  DAP Laboratory Medicine Accreditation Standards have been developed through a collaborative, consultative and consensus building process that involved advisory committees, health professionals and organizations, academics, health authorities (public) and private facilities.  The accreditation standards are regularly reviewed and updated to ensure they are relevant, applicable and are reflective of current best practices.
The 2015 Laboratory Medicine Accreditation Standards have been reviewed and accredited by the International Society for Quality in Health Care. (ISQua).
