AARC - Defining and Measuring Competency

Purchase includes Downloadable PDF and access to online test.



Course Description:  Competency is defined by most as “an ability or skill.” If we demonstrate competence in a certain area, we are demonstrating that we can perform that skill effectively. So why conduct competency testing in health care? The answer is simple – we must be able to demonstrate to the medical and general publics that we can perform those skills that we are entrusted to provide. The public has every right to know that we are doing our jobs correctly, and testing our competence on a periodic basis is the most effective way of demonstrating those abilities.
