Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education (06/07/19)

Joint Accreditation for Interprofessional Continuing Education has modified the Joint Accreditation Program and Activity Reporting System (JA-PARS) to let providers input more data about CE activities that include optometrists, physician assistants, psychologists, and social workers. Changes include support to indicate if an activity's target audience includes those specialties, the ability to signal the specialties' offered credit/contact hours, and participation numbers for specialists.
