New evaluation tools, review of survey instruments among recent additions to the Resource Exchange
We've heard that one of the biggest obstacles to progress in the interprofessional field is that health care educators, learners, caregivers and patients quite literally speak different languages. One of the goals of the Resource Exchange, a community-supported library of digital resources about interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP), is to collect related resources in the same online space for easy access -- and conversation.
Our collection is growing daily, and these resources tell the story of where we've been, what we've learned, what we're doing, and what comes next. Below is a summary of the latest additions.
An Introduction to Interprofessional Health Education and Practice (online presentation from Indiana University)
Measuring Teamwork in Healthcare Settings: A Review of Survey Instruments (from Melissa Valentine, Stanford University)
The Interprofessional Collaborator Assessment Rubric (ICAR) and Development and Validation of the Interprofessional Collaborator Assessment Rubric (tool and article from Vernon Curran)
From Buy-in to Integration: Melding an Interprofessional Initiative Into Academic Programs in the Health Professions and Facilitating Factors For, Barriers To, and Outcomes of Interdisciplinary Education Projects in the Health Sciences (from SLU Center for Interprofessional Education and Research)
Interprofessional Education: A Review and Analysis of Programs from Three Academic Health Centers and Development of the Ambulatory Team Observed Structured Clinical Evaluation (ATOSCE) (from Sheree Aston)

Exchange is an active verb, so we encourage all members of our community to contribute impactful content. Uploads to the site shouldn’t be limited to peer-reviewed scholarship. When considering what to upload, ask yourself: “Will this resource benefit me, my colleagues, my fellow learners, or my (fellow) patients?”
Original content is valuable, but so is commentary and feedback about existing resources. Comments continue the conversation begun by the original authors and also enable the community to describe effective uses of the materials in the repository. Feedback allows the community to recommend the most useful resources.
