Our Mission, Vision and Values guide everything we do at Ascension. As part of this, the Ascension Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE) program seeks to address the strategies healthcare professionals associated with Ascension can apply to their practices that will contribute to our Mission and vision. Unique to Ascension’s faith- based ministry, the IPCE program will ensure that the care model it advocates incorporates compassionate, personalized care to all, with special attention to persons living in poverty and those most vulnerable.

With IPCE and Joint Accreditation program, you have a team of committed leaders to support this national program as well as your local educational activities. We are excited to work with all disciplines of our care team to continue to bring high-quality education to our organization.

By leveraging technology to establish innovative training and education featuring internal subject matter experts from across Ascension, the livestreaming program allows for education at a time that is convenient for individual schedules and can reduce travel and time away from practice.

Ascension promotes and supports interprofessional education (IPE) activities specifically designed to improve interprofessional collaborative practice (IPCP) in healthcare delivery. Livestreaming and on demand CE/CME will be implemented across Ascension with anticipated expansion and usage possibilities within the local markets.

The Ascension IPCE program will:

  • Improve the professional knowledge and skills of its interprofessional practitioners through exposure to new medical and related behavioral health information.
  • Develop an interdisciplinary healthcare team approach to impact community and population health through the development and implementation of evidence-based education programs.
  • Provide practicing interdisciplinary teams with educational opportunities that will advance the delivery of care in a compassionate environment.
  • Facilitate a systems approach within Ascension to support the integration of access, quality, patient safety, medical readiness and efficiency in assessing program effectiveness.
  • Promote leadership for the achievement of Higher Reliability metrics - associated with processes, behaviors, transparence and teams in place - to maximize safety, lead with quality and improve patient outcomes.
  • Link with findings from Ascension hospitals and quality improvement departments to facilitate the realization of quality and patient safety goals.
  • Increase communication by and between team members to improve transition in care and eliminate errors that impact patient safety.
