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.

The Interprofessional Collaboration Scale contains 13 items to measure three constructs: communication (5 items), accommodation (5 items), and isolation (3 items). The scale's novel feature is that it was conceived and written for multiple-group, round robin, rater judgements of target groups. For example, inpatient medical/surgical wards may be staffed by nurses, physicians, and allied health care professionals. The survey can be completed by nurses (raters) to make physicians and other health professionals targets of the items.
