Proposal for Modifications to Joint Accreditation Criteria

July 26, 2018

Submit Your Comments about Proposed Modifications to Joint Accreditation Criteria and a New Option for Joint Accreditation with Commendation

Chicago, IL

We are pleased to let you know that we have prepared a proposal for modifications to the Joint Accreditation Criteria. The proposal builds on the discussions we’ve had with our community of jointly accredited providers over the past two years.

The proposal includes two sets of changes:

  • Joint Accreditation Criteria 1-13: We are suggesting minor edits for the purpose of clarity and simplification. These edits are based on questions and feedback from providers and survey teams. One of the recommended changes is to delete Criterion 11 and include an enhanced version of that criterion in the Menu of Criteria for Joint Accreditation with Commendation.
  • Menu of Criteria for Joint Accreditation with Commendation: We’ve heard from jointly accredited providers that an option to achieve commendation would promote the value of interprofessional continuing education (IPCE), encourage the continued evolution of IPCE programs, and reward providers that implement exemplary practices and generate meaningful outcomes. We are seeking feedback about the criteria and the menu structure.

We welcome feedback from jointly accredited providers and other IPCE stakeholders. Please download this PDF, which includes the proposal along with a copy of the survey, so you and your stakeholders can review before submitting your comments.

The survey has been closed. Thank you to the many providers who responded. The accreditors are currently reviewing the responses.

Our goal is to support jointly accredited providers so they can continue to make a substantial difference to healthcare teams and the patients they serve. As always, we thank our providers for their efforts and we look forward to receiving your comments.
