Accreditation Services

Continuing education activity planning begins with the identification of educational needs for the targeted audience. Identified educational needs direct the development of measurable learning and behavioral objectives. As an accredited provider by the ACCME, ANCC-COA, ACPE, and CaBRN, the Institute for Continuing Healthcare Education provides accreditation services to certify live and enduring activities through our joint sponsorship program.

Key Criteria for Evaluating Continuing Education Activities for Credit:

Needs Assessment  
Educational activities must document educational needs and demonstrate how the needs will be addressed in the planning of the educational program.

Purpose and Objectives  
Educational activities must clearly define their purpose and objectives.

Educational activities must include an evaluation that addresses whether the educational needs and objectives have been met.

Educational activities must demonstrate balance, independence, objectivity, and scientific rigor.
