Welcome to the Institute for NP Excellence
Continuing education for Nurse practitioners (NPs) makes up the majority of INPE's services. Additional projects include the creation of practice resources to help NPs promote patient-centered and evidence-based care. Our programs are designed and delivered by expert NPs.

Learn About a New Approach to Shared Decision Making
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has developed the SHARE Approach, a five-step evidence-based process for shared decision making to help clinicians engage patients in their care. AHRQ is offering train-the-trainer workshops for clinicians to learn how to implement the SHARE Approach in their practice with patient decision tools from AHRQ. Workshop participants will receive information tools and guidance to teach other clinicians in their organizations about shared decision making. The first workshop is scheduled January 23, 2015 in St. Louis, MO. To learn more about the workshops and the resources, go to the SHARE Approach website.
The menu to the left provides a link to INPE's Diabetes Resource Toolkit, where we have assembled a list of helpful websites and documents for those treating patients at risk for or diagnosed with diabetes. The National Diabetes Education Program (NDEP) has recently updated several of their resources, including Guiding Principles for the Care of People With or at Risk for Diabetes. The NDEP Practice Transformation site offers several great resources. We also have a program on diabetes in our CE Center and invite you to participate in this interactive overview of diabetes. We will be adding focused diabetes topics in the future.
