Access to the Joint Commission Manual

Question :   Where can I find online access to The Joint Commission [CAMH] Manual?

How to get there :

                CAMH Manual (for Affinity) is listed first in the 2nd section.

The Joint Commission Resources page contains several additional links related to The Joint Commission, including the following :

Joint Commission Connect
The Joint Commission (Home Page)

Joint Commission Manuals

Joint Commission Journals :
                The Joint Commission Journal on Quality & Patient Safety
                Joint Commission Perspectives

*     Each Hospital accredited by The Joint Commission gets complementary single-user access to the eDition of The CAMH Manual.  Access to The CAMH Manual is not centralized, nor simple.  Other Ministry Hospitals have made access to the CAMH Manual available on their own site-specific  intranet pages.  If you are not “native” to Affinity, please refer to your local Ministry Hospital for access to the CAMH Manual.
