The Peer Review Team
Each peer review team will consist of 1-3 peer reviewers, who bring expertise from direct experience. This team completes both a pre-site visit review of documents submitted by organizations, and site visits.
Because the duration of a two-day visit is very short, each team will want to make the best use of the allotted time. It is important that teams achieve the desired goals, as well as to honor the time committment that the applicant organization is making.
A high level of teamwork, organization, and communication will be necessary in order to get everything accomplished. Each team will need to communicate before the actual site visit and to coordinate efforts once on location. It is imperative that teams schedule a face-to-face meeting the night before and/or the morning of the first day of the visit. Teams will make use of “face time” throughout, as well as directly following, the visit. Meeting time will offer important opportunities to share notes, divide and assign tasks, and offer/receive support from other team members.
