JOURNAL REVIEW  The attitude of health care professionals towards accreditation: A systematic review of the literature  Done by:- Abdullah Alkhenizan and Charles Shaw1  Retrieved from Journal of Family Community Med. 2012 May-Aug; 19(2): 74–80.  Aim:- To systematically review the literature of the attitude of health care professionals towards professional accreditation.
  47. 47.  Study design:- This was a systematic qualitative review of the literature of the attitude of health care professionals towards accreditation. A comprehensive updated search of four electronic bibliographic databases including Medline from 1996- January 2011, Cinhal, from 1982-January 2011, Embase from 1980-January 2011, and Health Star from 1980-January 2011 was done. Here included the physicians, nurses and allied health personnel.
  48. 48. ATTITUDE OF PHYSICIANS In a qualitative Australian study (n = 72) doctors were generally unaware of accreditation and skeptical of it. Their concern was on how quality of care was to be measured. Doctors felt accountable within a professional framework, to themselves, the patient and family, their peers and to their profession; but not to accreditation bodies.In a cross- sectional questionnaire of consultant radiologists, 87% of radiologists favored accreditation for virtual colonoscopy.
  49. 49. ATTITUDE OF NURSES  In the large randomized controlled trial, the (QAP) nurses’ overall perceptions of care (n = 1048), at the accredited hospitals increased significantly (59% to 61%), compared to the control hospitals (declined from 61% to 57.In a large rigorous survey conducted in Lebanon (n = 1048), nurses perceived a significant improvement of results in quality in hospitals as an outcome of accreditation.
  50. 50. CONCLUSION  Several studies have shown that health care professionals were skeptical about accreditation because of concerns about its impact on the quality of health care services. Concerns raised about the cost of accreditation programs by health care professionals especially in developing countries were consistent. Healthcare professionals (especially physicians) have to be educated on the potential benefits of accreditation. It is also necessary to conduct a rigorous, independent evaluation of the cost- benefit analysis of accreditation of health services.
