An Update on Patient Advocate Certification (2017)

podcast and resources belowAPHA Expert Call-in

September 2017

Many advocates and those who are considering advocacy as a career have interest in becoming certified in their profession. Recognizing the importance of certification for both advocates and the patient-clients they serve, the Patient Advocate Certification Board (PACB) has been working to develop that certification since late 2012.

And now – we’re close! The PACB anticipates offering the first certification exam in early 2018.

Of course, advocates have many questions about everything from eligibility to be certified, to specifics about the test, to locations, costs, recertification, and much more.

To help you understand our progress, and the steps still to be taken, the PACB invites you to participate in this update call-in. Hear more about the development of the certification, what it will mean for you and your practice, the answers to those questions and many more.
