Editor's Note

The Joint Commission, in collaboration with the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), announced on October 20 the launch of Advanced Certification in Perinatal Care (ACPC).

ACPC incorporates the latest research, evidence-based practices, and guidance to help improve quality and safety for pregnant or postpartum patients and newborns.

The new certification, which will replace The Joint Commission’s current Perinatal Care Certification, will be available to Joint Commission accredited, non-Joint Commission accredited, and non-accredited hospitals and critical access hospitals with perinatal care programs.

ACPC is currently available for pre-application and will begin January 1, 2023.
