We’d also like to thank everyone who joined us in sending our friend and colleague, Peter Vlasses, PharmD, DSc (Hon), FCCP, best wishes on his retirement and new chapter in life. We appreciate his dedication and career as Executive Director of Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE).

Join us for the Joint Accreditation Provider Update Webinar on December 10 at 1:00 pm Central.
Beginning in 2020 Joint Accreditation is implementing a new, tiered structure for the annual accreditation fee paid by jointly accredited providers. In September, we sent information to the primary contact for each jointly accredited provider explaining the new structure and the
amounts due for the 2020 and 2021 annual accreditation fees. If your organization is jointly accredited and you did not receive this information, please contact [email protected]. Invoices will be sent in mid-December. More information is available here. If you have questions, please contact us at [email protected].
We encourage you to include the IPCE credit mark and statement with your IPCE activities that have been planned by and for the healthcare team, in addition to the Joint Accreditation statement.
“This activity was planned by and for the healthcare team, and learners will receive (INSERT #) Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) credit for learning and change.”
The use of the IPCE credit mark and statement will serve to highlight the value of IPCE and communicate to your learners and other stakeholders that the activity is specifically designed to improve team collaboration and patient care. IPCE credit has been recognized by the Federation of State Medical Boards (FSMB) and the Georgia dBoard of Pharmacy. Click here to download the IPCE credit mark.
Joint accreditation leaders conducted a session, “Interprofessional Continuing Education for Optimal Health Outcomes,” at the Collaborating Across Borders: Crossroads of Collaboration conference, held earlier this week.

Indiana University School of Medicine, Press Ganey, and The Carle Foundation are jointly accredited providers.
A new, free educational offering, Substance Use Disorder 101 Core Curriculum, offers interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) credits. The curriculum is designed to educate primary care providers on the prevention, assessment, and treatment of substance use disorders (SUD) throughout the continuum of care. The program was created by the Providers Clinical Support System, a coalition led by the American Academy of Addiction Psychiatry, a jointly accredited provider, and funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The goal is to get all health professionals to work and train together in the area of evidence-based clinical practices in preventing and treating SUDs. Learn more.
Funding for this initiative was made possible (in part) by grant no. 1H79TI081968 from SAMHSA.
