The International Accreditation Forum (IAF) and the International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC), will mark World Accreditation Day on June 9th. The theme this year focuses on how accreditation supports quality assurance in the delivery of health and social care services. Workshops, seminars and conferences are taking place across the world to show how accreditation ensures that users of heath and social care services receive a consistent high level of care, with quality patient outcomes at their core.
