EURASIAN CENTRE FOR ACCREDITATION AND QUALITY ASSURANCE IN HIGHER EDUCATION AND HEALTH CARE HAS DEVELOPED AND IMPLEMENTED THE STANDARDS FOR ACCREDITATION AND PROCEDURES FOR SELF-EVALUATION OF SIMULATION CENTRES IN MEDICINE AND HEALTHCARE
These Standards for Accreditation and Procedures for Self-Evaluation of Simulation Centres in Medicine and Healthcare (hereinafter referred to as Standards for Accreditation) are based on an analysis of international experience in simulation-based training and simulation-based programme evaluation methodology of The Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM), Denmark, and The Committee for Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programmes of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare/SSH, USA, in accordance with the institutional needs and priorities of medical education, nursing education, healthcare system of the Republic of Kazakhstan.
The Standards for Accreditation are applied by educational and scientific healthcare organisations, organisations of continuing education, Simulation Centres to conduct self-evaluation, improve internal mechanisms for quality assurance and develop a quality culture.
The accrediting agency applies these Standards for Accreditation to conduct external evaluation in order to ensure quality and implement the principles of international best practice and achievements in the area of simulation technologies, promote the development of a professional community in the simulation-based education.
Self-evaluation and external evaluation are carried out according to 9 core Standards for Accreditation:
