Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education offers organizations the opportunity to be simultaneously accredited to provide continuing education for athletic trainers, dentists, dietitians, nurses, optometrists, PAs (physician assistants), pharmacists, physicians, psychologists, and social workers through a single, unified application process, fee structure, and set of accreditation standards.

Enhance Interprofessional Education Opportunities for Healthcare Teams

The first and only innovation in the world offering multiple accreditations in 1 review process, Joint Accreditation promotes interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) activities specifically designed to improve interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) in health care delivery.

A leading model for IPCP itself, Joint Accreditation establishes the standards for education providers to deliver continuing education planned by the healthcare team for the healthcare team. This distinction is awarded from 3 global leaders in the field of accreditation:

  • Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)
  • Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)
  • American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)
