Values and ethics Work with individuals of other professions to maintain a climate of mutual respect and shared values. Work in cooperation with those who receive care, those who provide care and others who contribute to or support the delivery of prevention and health services. Demonstrate high standards of ethical conduct and quality of care in ones contributions to team-based care. Manage ethical dilemmas specific to interprofessional patient/population centered care situations.
Roles and Responsibilities Use the knowledge of ones own role and those of other professions to appropriately assess and address the healthcare needs of the patients and populations served. Explain the roles and responsibilities of other care providers and how the team works together to provide care. Communicate with team members to clarify each members responsibility in executing components of a treatment plan or public health intervention. Use unique and complementary abilities of all members of the team to optimize patient care.
Interprofessional Communication Communicate with patients, families, communities, and other health professionals in a responsive and responsible manner that supports a team approach to the maintenance of health and treatment of disease. Choose effective communication tools and techniques Give timely, sensitive, instructive feedback to others about their performance on the team, responding respectfully as a team member to feedback from others. Recognize how ones own uniqueness…contributes to effective communication, conflict resolution and positive interprofessional working relationships.
Teams and Teamwork Apply relationship-building values and the principles of team dynamics to perform effectively in different team roles to plan and deliver patient- and population-centered care that is safe, timely, efficient, effective and equitable. Integrate the knowledge and experience of other professions appropriate to the specific care situation… Share accountability…for outcomes relevant to prevention and healthcare. Perform effectively on teams and in different team roles in a variety of settings.

Interprofessional Partners in Action IPPIA is an interprofessional public-private partnership between federal agencies (HRSA, VA), foundations (Macy, RWJF, ABIMF) and the Interprofessional Education Collaborative and key stakeholders from education, practice and policy. Mission: Ensure that new and current health professionals are proficient in the competencies essential for patient-centered, interprofessional collaborative practice.
Interprofessional Education When students from two or more professions learn about, from and with each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes (WHO, 2010)

7 Major Issues
Issue #1. There should be guidelines for qualifications to enter doctoral programs that prepare health service psychologists. Issue #1. There should be guidelines for qualifications to enter doctoral programs that prepare health service psychologists. More biology? Psychology Field Test of ETS? Draft criteria
Issue #2. The competencies of psychologists who provide health services should be clearly articulated and understood by faculty, students, regulators and the public Scientific Knowledge and Methods Research/Evaluation Professional Values and Attitudes Individual and Cultural Diversity Ethical and Legal Standards and Policy Reflective Practice Relational Evidence-based Practice Assessment Intervention Consultation Teaching Supervision Interdisciplinary Systems Professional Leadership Development Advocacy
Implications for Clinical Psychology E&T More focus on biology Interprofessional competence Self-assessment and lifelong learning Practice based research skills QI, outcomes research, program eval, needs assessment, cost-benefit models
Go To: Go To:
Issue #3. Psychology needs to establish the standard of self-regulation for its education and training in the profession. BEA Statement ASPPB
Issue #4. Psychology needs to evaluate and articulate the learning objectives for each level in its sequence of education and training of health service providers, as well as examine the sequence itself.
Issue #5. There needs to be increased focus on competency assessment in psychology education and training for the delivery of health care services. Issue #5. There needs to be increased focus on competency assessment in psychology education and training for the delivery of health care services.
Issue #6. The future of health service psychology rests on the integration of science and practice. Education and training should be an integrative endeavor, both within and across content and levels in the curriculum as well as across the activities of research and health service provision.

Issue #7. Psychology needs more research relevant to the preparation of health service psychologists and must have a comprehensive workforce analysis.
SCENARIOSSCENARIOS How would your program need to change? How would you facilitate what you believe to be positive elements in the scenario? How would you deter what you believe to be negative elements in the scenario?
ScenarioScenario To be licensed for practice, all health professionals must demonstrate competence in outcomes research and conducting practice based quality improvement studies.
ScenarioScenario Students enter professional psychology programs with strong backgrounds in psychology and pursue 3-4 years of intensive study designed to develop specified competencies. When they demonstrate competence in core psychology, clinical science, basic general clinical skills, the ability to think critically and learn independently as well as ethical behavior they are granted the doctoral degree. They then attend an intensive 2 year supervised training program in professional psychology. These programs vary according to various dimensions (e.g., specialty, prevention, research emphasis). Only those programs that are preparing psychologists for the provision of health care services are accredited by the APA, and training in an accredited program is required for licensure for independent practice as a health service psychologist
ScenarioScenario Programs offering PhDs in psychology are required to demonstrate that their graduates are capable of both creating and synthesizing new knowledge. Programs offering PsyDs in psychology are required to demonstrate that their graduates are competent in evidence- based practice. Programs that provide education and training that results in both outcomes award both the PhD and the PsyD.
ScenarioScenario With respect to the health care system, professional psychologists continue to be employed as teachers, administrators, researchers and practitioners. However, masters level professionals are hired to provide the bulk of the psychotherapy services in the health care system.
ScenarioScenario Doctoral education training of health service psychologists occurs in a setting that includes, as an integral part, faculty from other disciplines and professions, a health service system, experience with other health profession trainees and faculty conducting cutting edge research related to both clinical practice and health services research.
ScenarioScenario All programs are required to demonstrate that they provide education and training for students to achieve demonstrated competence in interprofessional functioning, practice based quality improvement, self- assessment, clinical decision-making, and telehealth.
ScenarioScenario The baccalaureate degree becomes a 3 year enterprise.
ScenarioScenario Doctoral education and training in professional psychology is comprised of a diverse set of programs. Some programs graduate students who are competent to practice with children and families and others with competence to prescribe medications, to consult with industry, to design prevention programs or to perform neuropsychological assessments.
ScenarioScenario Psychology remains a very attractive field of study. More people want to obtain doctorates and demand access to doctoral programs. Eager to generate credit hours and revenues, programs open their doors and become increasingly inclusive of the general population. Class sizes are large initially, but the curriculum is designed to weed out all but the most talented as students progress in the program.
ScenarioScenario All required content is delivered online. Because of student demand for portability the sequence is the same across programs. Student demand for access to various training opportunities results in swirling across programs. What implications does this have for program management, student tracking, attainment /assessment of clinical skills, and the role of the faculty?
