Resource Type: 

The Interprofessional Collaborative Competency Attainment Survey is a 20 item self-assessment tool. Its items cover aspects of trainee roles on a team and use of interprofessional practice team approaches to patient care. 

The ICCAS is intended to measure the self-reported competencies of interprofessional care in interprofessional education programs (Archibald, Trumpower, & MacDonald, 2014)

A 20-item self-assessment tool, based on concepts from existing instruments (IEPS, RIPLS, and ATHCTS), but worded as behaviors rather than values or beliefs. Items are phrased as “agree/disagree” on a 7-point scale, plus an option to rate “not applicable.”  

The ICCAS tool can be found in the Appendix of the article:   Archibald, D., Trumpower, D, & MacDonald, C.J. (2014) Validation of the interprofessional collaborative competency attainment survey (ICCAS). Journal of Interprofessional Care, 28(6) 553-558.  DOI: 10.3109/13561820.2014.917407
