The Accreditation Committee invites you to provide feedback on its draft proposed Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP) Statement of Intent.
The Accreditation Committee (the committee) invites you to provide feedback on its draft proposed Interprofessional Collaborative Practice (IPCP) Statement of Intent (the statement).
Achieving interprofessional collaborative practice is fundamental to effective team-based and coordinated care. This will benefit individuals and healthcare consumers by enhancing their healthcare experiences and health outcomes. The committee is seeking to contribute to embedding interprofessional collaborative practice in the 16 professions within the National Scheme by gaining a joint commitment from stakeholders across the health and education sectors to take action.
'We want to improve health outcomes for patients by encouraging stakeholders across the health and education sectors to commit to Interprofessional Collaborative Practice as part of normal care.
We would like to hear what these stakeholders think about our proposed Statement of Intent and gain their commitment. Our consultation opens today,' said Professor Andrew Wilson, Chair of the Accreditation Committee.
The committee invites stakeholders across the health and education sectors to express interest in signing the statement and recognises that broad support across both sectors is key to achieving its intent.
The committee was established in 2021, in line with Ministerial Council Policy Direction 2020-1 – Independent Accreditation Committee. The committee gives independent and expert advice on accreditation reform and other National Scheme accreditation matters to National Scheme entities (National Boards, accreditation authorities and Ahpra). For information on accreditation in the National Scheme see the Ahpra website.
