IPEC Competency Self-Assessment Tool

This instrument was designed to assess competencies related to collaborative practice at the healthcare degree program level through individual student self-assessment. Specifically, the tool measures students' self-efficacy on items based on the 42 core competency statements developed by the Interprofessional Education Collaborative (IPEC, 2011), a consortium of professional associations in the U.S. representing six disciplines.  Results can help inform curriculum planning, track the...

The Short-Form (SF-36) Health Survey

The SF-36 is a multi-purpose survey designed to capture adult patients' perceptions of their own health and well-being.  Based on a much longer survey developed in the 1980's by Ware, J.E., the SF-36 has 36 items grouped in 8 dimensions: physical functoning, physicial and emotional limitations, social functioning, bodily pain, general and mental health.  It is a generic measure, as opposed to one that targets a specific age, disease, or treatment group.  It can be administered in a...

Performance Assessment Communication and Teamwork Tools Set (PACT)

The PACT Tool set was designed by faculty and staff at the University of Washington (Center for Health Sciences, Interprofessional Education, Research, and Practice), as part of a Macy and Hearst Foundations grant to develop a simulation-based team training program for pre-licensure health professions students.  To develop the program, the authors chose the "Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety" (TeamSTEPPS®) model as a guiding framework.  The PACT...

Assessment of Interprofessional Team Collaboration Scale (AITCS)

The AITCS is designed as a diagnostic instrument to evaluate the level of interprofessional collaboration among a variety of health care teams. Specifically, the tool measures partnership, cooperation, and coordination in a 37-item self-report instrument. The results are meant to provide insight into the strengths and weakness of interprofessional teams in a variety of settings. A validation study of 125 healthcare workers demonstrated good factor structure and high internal reliability.  A...

Interprofessional Socialization and Valuing Scale (ISVS-21)

The ISVS-21 represents a refinement of a previous tool (ISVS-24, King et al., 2010); both are self-report instruments designed to measure interprofessional socialization among students and health practitioners and their readiness to function in interprofessional teams.  Items were developed to capture respondent beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors at baseline and at post-intervention time periods.  The original ISVS has been used in multiple studies.  The purpose of the study reported here was to...

Students Perceptions of Interprofessional Clinical Education Revised (SPICE-R)

The SPICE-R is a short (10-item) self-report survey designed to measure health professions students' perceptions of interprofessional education and interprofessional collaborative practice.  It represents a variation of an earlier instrument (SPICE-1), which was developed specifically for medical and pharmacy students. Items reflect a 3-factor model capturing interprofessional teamwork and team-based practice; roles and responsibilities for collaborative practice; and patient outcomes from...

Communication Assessment Tool- Team (CAT-T)

The CAT-T is a patient satisfaction survey focused on the quality of communication received from a medical team during a visit to the emergency department.  "Communication" refers to the interactions between members of the health care team and the patient (not interactions among health care team members).  "Communication skills" was considered a single unitary construct undelying all of the items.  The CAT-T represents a replication of a previously studied instrument, "...

Teamwork Assessment Scale (TAS)

The purpose of the TAS is two-fold: to train and to assess undergraduate medical students' ability to work in teams during ward rounds.  Based on a theoretical model of teamwork, it measures team functioning using a 14-item observational tool applied in a simulation lab. In the validation studies, small teams of 3-4 medical students and chiefs of medicine participated in three different simulated scenarios that were designed to assess team coordination, cooperation, information exchange,...

Interprofessional Collaboration Scale (ICS)

The self-report tool was designed to collect perceptions of interprofessional collaboration among three different groups: nurses, doctors, and allied health professionals (to include physical therapists, pharmacists,and social workers). Specifically, perceptions of communication, isolation, and accommodation are measured in a 13-item survey.  Parallel versions of the survey pair different "rater-target" dyads.  That is, nurses rate their working relationships with doctors and vice...
