Self Audit Tool

This self-audit tool provides an opportunity for caregiver education and support program providers to become more familiar with the promising practices and indicators and assess which of the indicators their program is currently meeting. With this, programs will be able to identify areas where their program can potentially be improved, perhaps through partnership with other programs.

By clicking on the [?] link beside each indicator, you can learn more about what caregivers told us about each of the indicators.

Once you have completed the self-audit tool, you will have the opportunity to print or e-mail yourself the results, as well as the option to share your results and information about your program/organization with us so that we can include you in our repository of caregiver education and support programs.
