What can we help you find?
These past two years have illustrated the importance of science and the value of accredited continuing education in providing much-needed training during a global pandemic. Together, we’ve learned that the tenets of interprofessional collaborative practice, such as mutual respect and trust, are never more important than during a crisis. We thank our community of colleague accreditors and providers for your dedication to supporting clinicians and teams in delivering quality care during the pandemic and beyond. We hope that during this holiday season and in the coming year you are able to reconnect with loved ones and colleagues and experience the optimism and pride we feel for the IPCE community.
