Assessing your Program Needs

step2 full

The organization has assessed risks associated with client handling, client mobility requirements, equipment, the environment, and the organizational culture. 

An evaluation of organizational factors should be completed when developing a new program or when revising an existing program. A comprehensive organizational assessment identifies the current and potential risks concerning client handling issues, corporate culture, clients, caregivers, equipment, and environment. In addition, it will identify any existing and potential barriers that may challenge the program’s success.


The following should be gathered and analyzed during this assessment process:  


  • Incident/accident analysis 
  • Client mobility assessments
  • Equipment needs 
  • Environmental barriers 
  • Organizational culture
