Launch of the Measurement Instrument Collection 2022 Review
The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is convening and charging a group of measurement and evaluation experts with experience in the field of interprofessional practice and education to review and relaunch the Measurement Instrument Collection on Nexusipe.org.
Last updated in 2017, the field of interprofessional practice and education has exponentially expanded as evidenced by the number of pageviews and world-wide use of the Collection. While interprofessional education and collaborative practice is a nearly 60-year old field, with its resurgence and renewal since 2010, the National Center is seeking to update the collection based upon a number of factors.
In 2017, the peer-reviewed collection’s process, guiding principles, framework and standards were created and implemented by Connie Schmitz, Ph.D., the National Center Evaluator and the Human Resources and Research Organization (HUMRRO), national experts in evidence-based assessment in organizations. To ensure an objective process as part of the 2022 review, the National Center is convening a panel of individuals with expertise in measurement and evaluation and experience in interprofessional practice and education.
Seeking Individuals with Measurement and Evaluation Expertise
The National Center is inviting individuals interested in serving on the Measurement Instrument Collection Review Committee to submit a brief application highlighting their expertise in measurement and evaluation, including psychometric expertise, as well as experience with interprofessional practice and education. Kelly Lockeman, PhD, Director of Evaluation and Assessment at VCU Center for Interprofessional Education and Collaborative Care and American Interprofessional Health Collaborative (AIHC) board member, will chair the Review Committee and has contributed to the shaping of the effort.
Individuals selected for the Measurement Instrument Collection Review Committee will be asked to make a one-year commitment, with an option to renew for a 2nd year. On average, members will be asked to contribute 3-4 hours/month, including a committee meeting as well as independent and/or small group work.
AIHC is the professional community of the National Center. We encourage all applicants to consider membership in AIHC. To learn more about AIHC and become a member, visit https://aihc-us.org/
Applications will be accepted through Friday, February 18.
