Plan Your Activity

The National Center Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development develops continuing education programming directly and works through joint providerships with other organizations including state health agencies, health care organizations, higher education institutions, community-based organizations, non-profit organizations and professional societies whose own missions are aligned with that of our own.


Joint Accreditation standards reflects the accreditor's shared principles and apply regardless of whether the activity is designed by and for a single profession, or by and for an interprofessional team.  All educational activities must be based on an identified professional practice gap(s), reflect adult learning principles, and include evaluation. Content must be valid, evidence-based, and independent of commercial influence or bias. 

Application Process

The National Center OICPD has a single, unified application process that includes all of the professional credits offered. The educational planning process is designed to reflect input from those healthcare professionals who make up the team being served. The education is designed to address practice gaps of the team, and to change the skill or strategy and/or performance of the healthcare team, or patient outcomes.
