Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


In response to Dr. Barnum's article, this article provides another view on licensure, certification, and accreditation. Current and future issues are outlined, discussed, and relevant questions are addressed. The issues involved in accreditation will not be resolved with simplistic competition; rather, the issues demand a response bigger than current practices.
