Great Valley Publishing (GVP) announces that it has been awarded Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education™ (Joint Accreditation) as a provider of interprofessional continuing education (IPCE). Joint Accreditation is awarded by three national institutions at the forefront of IPCE -- the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nursing Credentialing Center (ANCC) -- and is the gold standard for continuing education for physicians, pharmacists, and nurses, as well as other healthcare professionals including registered dietitians, social workers, physician assistants, psychologists, optometrists, dentists, and athletic trainers.

Recognition as a Jointly Accredited Provider certifies that GVP's educational activities have been planned by and for the healthcare team. Additionally, the award of Joint Accreditation aligns GVP with some of the most prestigious US medical schools, hospitals, and national medical associations. Joint Accreditation ensures that continuing education for healthcare teams serves the needs of patients and the public, and is designed to be independent, free from commercial bias, based on valid content, relevant, and effective in improving the safety of care delivered by the healthcare team.

According to national continuing education advisor, Steven Passin, President of Steve Passin & Associates, “Great Valley Publishing’s inclusion into the ranks of organizations that are Jointly Accredited places them among those medical educators that have demonstrated the highest levels of educational acumen based on quality and patient safety parameters consistent with identified needs of the healthcare team.”
