Finding Joy in Child Life Competencies: A Model for Development and Assessment
This workshop will focus on creating a competency verification process that is program based. Competencies change based on patient population, teams, and management, keeping staff more at ease with the care they provide. It is not what you know, but what you can actually do that is evidence of competency.
■ Consider the benefits of establishing a competency verification process for a child life team.
■ Explore various competency verification program models.
■ Identify steps to create a competency verification process and how to implement changes to their own programs.
■ Anticipate challenges in implementing child life competencies and will develop solutions to these challenges that will benefit the team and population they serve.
