Health knowledge and information is part of several accreditation processes
- medical schools, hospitals, residency programs, allied health specialists
and the like.  This is why the satellite teleconference of the Medical
Library Association entitled "The Role of the Library in Accreditation"
which will be broadcast on Wednesday, March 13, 1996, at 1:00 PM EST, is
taking a broad based view.
You will hear from Dr. Harry Jonas of the Liaison Commission on Medical
Eduction about standards for medical schools and colleagues like Lynn Kasner
Morgan, Shelley Bader, Bob Braude and Rochelle Minchow sharing their
experiences with LCME.  You will also hear from Dr. Paul Schyve of the Joint
Commission on Accreditation of Healthcase Organizations and Marlilyn Colton
from the Canadian Council on Health Services Accreditation addressing the
library's role in hospital accreditation.  Colleagues Christiane Jones,
Jacqueline Doyle and Connie Schardt will expand these ideas during their
segments of the teleconference.  Dr. John Gienapp will represent the
accreditation process from the viewpoint of the residency programs and will
particpate with the other presenters in a live panel at the end of the 90
minute program.  Sereval other MLA members will share their experiences of
accreditation processes.
Overall, you, the viewer, will get a broadbased look at what makes the
accreditation process a positive and growth-filled experience.  Check the

to assure yourself a place for "The Role of the Library in Accreditation!"
