Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education (Joint Accreditation) offers organizations the opportunity to be simultaneously accredited to provide medical, nursing, pharmacy, and optometry continuing education activities through a single, unified application process, fee structure, and set of accreditation standards.
Joint Accreditation originally began by focusing on CME, CNE, and CPE. This meant collaboration across these groups:
The American Academy of PAs (AAPA) and the Association of Regulatory Boards of Optometry's Council on Optometric Practitioner Education (ARBO/COPE) have recently joined the Joint Accreditation collaboration.

Interprofessional continuing education (IPCE) is when members from two or more professions learn with, from, and about each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.
