Your Input is Essential

COA’s Standards undergo review and comment by hundreds of professionals while they are posted on the COA website during a Field Comment period.  The feedback and commentary shared through draft standard reviews is essential to creating standards that reflect current trends, best practice principles and continuous quality improvement.   In addition, the input and guidance received provides the diverse perspectives necessary to develop rigorous yet practical standards.   

Please take a moment to review COA’s Standards currently undergoing field comment or note those that are upcoming to ensure you have the opportunity to share your invaluable perspective.  We look forward to receiving your feedback!
