IPAS is a scale designed to assess attitudes that relate to the 2011 Core Competencies for Interprofessional Collaborative Practice. IPAS is one of the first scales to focus specifically on the Core Competencies. IPAS consists of 27 items in 5 sub-scales, which we have called "Teamwork, Roles, and Responsibilities", "Patient-Centeredness", "Interprofessional Biases", "Diversity & Ethics", and "Community-Centeredness". IPAS was created from factor analysis of survey data collected from over 700 student respondents at the University of Utah Health Sciences Center in 2012.
