PMCV Accreditation Guide 2018 v1 Postgraduate Medical Council of Victoria Inc. 23 4. REVIEW OF PMCV ACCREDITATION STANDARDS AND PROCESS The PMCV Accreditation Committee reviews the accreditation process annually in order to ensure continuous improvement of the process. After each survey visit the facility is given the opportunity to provide feedback on the survey team performance and on the accreditation process. This data is collated into a de- identified report at the end of each year for consideration by the PMCV Accreditation Committee and the team leader group. Proposed changes arising from this feedback are considered by the PMCV Accreditation Committee and if appropriate, recommendations for change are forwarded to the PMCV Board for endorsement. PMCV also monitors the timelines of the accreditation program and undertakes a thematic analysis of junior doctor feedback, conditions and recommendations annually. PMCV will review the accreditation standards at least every five years5 . This review will be undertaken by the PMCV Accreditation Committee or a delegated working party and will involve consultation with key stakeholders. Policies and guidelines relevant to accreditation are reviewed every three years. All revisions to the accreditation standards, policies and guidelines recommended by the PMCV Accreditation Committee are forwarded to the PMCV Board for approval.
