In support of improving patient care, Dartmouth Health is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
The Dartmouth Health Center for Learning and Professional Development (CLPD) received Jointly Accredited Provider (JA) status by the Accreditation Council for Medical Education, the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education, and the American Nurses Credentialing Center. This is designed to provide continuing education for the healthcare team and meets the requirements for planning Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) learning activities. IPCE occurs “when members from two or more professions learn with, from and about each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.” (Joint Accreditation website)
Dartmouth Health is committed to offering excellence in continuing education to all members of the health care team. CLPD will continue to accredit learning activities that are single profession-focused, such as medicine and nursing, and will do so under the new Joint Accreditation status. As a division, CLPD focuses on supporting interprofessional educators and continuing education (CE) activities that address gaps in knowledge, skills/strategies and performance: the overall goal is to improve patient, care partner, and community outcomes.
