Tool

TSS was developed to measure three factors of perceived interprofessional team skills: interpersonal skills, discipline-specific skills, and geriatric care skills.

The Team Skills Scale is a 17-item tool with a 5-point scale that is used to assess interprofessional team skills. This tool has 1 subscale: team skills (Miller and Ishler,  2001).

TSS is often used in conjunction with ATHCT.
