IPECP Repository of Measurement Instruments Available Online

The National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education is now offering online access to a collection of instruments used for interprofessional education and collaborative practice (IPECP) research. The center’s process in collecting these instruments began with the 2012 Canadian Interprofessional Health Collaborative (CIHC) report on 128 IPECP instruments. The search was narrowed to include instruments readily available for viewing or used in at least two separate projects that lead to reports in refereed journals. Nationally standardized patient satisfaction surveys were also added. The collection process resulted in 26 instruments for initial inclusion in this curated collection.

Access these resources by visiting the National Center’s Resource Exchange; some tools are available for download. Users can browse the repository and narrow their search by outcomes such as attitudes, behavior, and organizational practice; by subscales; and by country. Anyone may contribute an instrument to National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education's Resource Exchange, which will then be available on their general Resource Exchange page.
