Standards and Ethics

The International Academy of Collaborative Professionals (IACP) has adopted Standards and Ethics appropriate for the unique nature of collaborative practice. They are designed to advance consistency of practice, a common set of expectations for professionals and clients, and a high level of integrity for the benefit of clients. The OACP encourages all collaborative professionals to regard these as minimum expectations to ensure that collaborative practice retains quality, consistency and integrity.
