IPEC Core Competencies Revision, 2021-2023

This page will house FAQs and other information about the revision project.

In May 2021, IPEC announced plans to begin a formal process to review and revise the 2016 IPEC Core Competencies.

The IPEC Core Competencies (CC) have helped to frame the national dialogue on the need for interprofessional education (IPE) and collaborative practice (CP) as a catalyst for improving teambased patient care and enhancing population health outcomes.

Key drivers for the 2021-2023 revision include the need to empower the IPE community with the best available evidence and research related to IPE and CP; conduct a cyclical review on common definitions for competence, competency and competency framework; and ensure that this framework accurately reflects any changes in research, policy, and practice.

The update process is slated to begin in June 2021 with a tentative release in summer/fall 2023.
