Overview of Criterion 23 from the ACCME Menu of Criteria for Accreditation with Commendation by Graham McMahon, MD, MMSc, ACCME President and CEO.


>>McMAHON: Teams are essential to the way in which we practice today, whether you're in an operating room or an ambulatory clinic. Interprofessional, collaborative continuing education occurs when members from two or more professions learn with, from, and about each other to enable and facilitate interprofessional collaborative practice and in that way improve health outcomes. This criteria recognizes accredited providers that work collaboratively with many members of the health professions to develop those types of educational environments that drive teamwork, construct effective teams and improve care quality.
