Draft IPA Instrument for Pilot Not for reproduction or widespread adoption currently Pilot begins this fall – do you think your institution would be interested as a test site? See handout on table
Questions 1.How could the IPA begin to shape interprofessional education policy and culture? 2. Are there assessment or research models that you are currently using to promote IPP? Successes and challenges? 3. What challenges do you foresee with using this instrument (IPA)? 4. What strategies could organizations employ to facilitate interprofessional assessment and research? 5. What recommendations do you have for IPC as we go forward (e.g, other tools, curricula)?
