Top Five Reasons to Pursue Certification

The Differences between Basic and Advanced Certifications
The Joint Commission offers basic and advanced certifications. When looking to achieve certification, you must meet the core requirements in the Disease-Specific Care Manual which include three main components: standards, clinical practice guidelines, and performance measurement. You choose your own measures. When achieving an advanced certification you must meet the core requirements plus additional clinically-specific requirements.
For stroke, there is one basic certification for Rehabilitation and four advanced certifications for Comprehensive Stroke Centers, Thrombectomy-Capable Stroke Centers, Primary Stroke Centers, and Acute Stroke Ready Hospitals.
