With the year coming to an end soon, this is the perfect time to reflect on yourself as a healthcare quality professional and your career development. And, questions may come to mind, “What am I doing in my current role?,” “Where do I want to take my career?,” “How can I learn what my peers are doing in similar positions?,” and “Where do I even start?”
I am so proud to let you know about NAHQ’s new cutting-edge tool, the Self-Assessment. It is based on the industry-standard Healthcare Quality Competency Framework defined by NAHQ and twice-validated in the field.
This Self-Assessment is a valuable career resource that will help you better understand how your role relates to the industry-standard competencies.
The insights you glean from the Self-Assessment will help you shape the future of healthcare quality in your organization and guide you along your career journey. Through an interactive dashboard, you will be able to reflect on your career and be confident knowing that you are following industry-standard competencies needed as a healthcare quality professional.
And, when you take the Self-Assessment, you will be directed to professional development resources that can help you build your healthcare quality knowledge and skills.
I encourage you to visit NAHQ’s website for more information about the Self-Assessment, and then take the next step: complete it!
Thank you for all you do as healthcare quality professionals.
