In this editorial, the author explores the continued rise of competency frameworks in the interprofessional field. He outlines the growth of interprofessional competency frameworks and discusses some of the benefits they offer before examining their current shortcomings. The overall aim of this editorial is to argue that, while our efforts in identifying and synthesizing interprofessional competence have taken some important steps forward in defining the key attitudes, knowledge, skills and behaviors for effective interprofessional practice, collectively there are still areas in which we need to improve to ensure the interprofessional competency frameworks we produce are done so in as robust a fashion as possible.
