Author information

Mayo Clinics, Rochester, Minnesota 55904, USA.


This article discusses Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (JCAHO) preparedness. A literature search reveals articles discussing varying tactics for addressing JCAHO preparedness (e.g., mock surveys, crossword puzzles, e-mail and paper updates, games, and pocket resource cards). However, no articles address the use of monthly pretests and posttests. This article focuses on the use of pretests and posttests as well as other interventions to prepare staff for the JCAHO tracer methodology.
