Advancing Healthcare Education by the Team for the Team
Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education™ offers organizations the opportunity to be simultaneously accredited to provide continuing education activities for multiple professions through a single, unified application process, fee structure, and set of accreditation standards. Jointly accredited providers may choose to award single profession or interprofessional continuing education credit (IPCE) to athletic trainers, dentists, dietitians, nurses, optometrists, PAs, pharmacists, physicians, psychologists, and social workers without needing to obtain separate accreditations. Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education™ is the first and only process in the world offering this benefit.
Joint Accreditation Standards
• Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME)
• Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE)
• American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)
Joint Accreditation Criteria
Your organization’s status and term as an accredited provider of continuing education for the healthcare team is based on demonstrated compliance with the Joint Accreditation Criteria.
In June 2019, we adopted and released modifications to the Joint Accreditation Core Criteria and introduced an optional Menu of Criteria for Joint Accreditation with Commendation. The changes went into effect June 1, 2020.
Joint Accreditation™ Process
Applicants submit materials including a self-study report and supporting activity files with a fee, and participate in an accreditation review jointly managed by ACCME, ACPE and ANCC.
The review process takes approximately 12 months.
