Field reviews

CARF has an interdisciplinary approach when introducing or revising standards. All proposed standards (new or revised) are developed with input from experts in the field and posted online for an open feedback period called a field review. We invite service providers, consumers, caregivers, payers/regulators, insurers, and other interested to provide anonymous feedback on the standards.
