Abstract

Background Advancing the science of interprofessional education (IPE) and its impact on collaborative practice requires measurement instruments with robust psychometric properties. Purpose Investigators assessed the extent to which the Interprofessional Collaborative Competency Attainment Survey (ICCAS) is valid and reliable when applied to assess self-reported attitudes about IPE and perceived ability to engage in collaborative practice among graduate health professions students. Method A purposive sample of 40 graduate students enrolled in a nurse practitioner (n = 16), social work (n = 15), and pharmacy (n = 9) program was recruited within two large public Midwestern universities in the United States. All participants completed the ICASS following completion of interprofessional training designed to encourage a collaborative approach to tobacco dependence treatment for individuals with mental illness. Discussion The ICCAS was an appropriate instrument for our population of students. Conclusions We recommend further research with a larger sample size to further examine the properties of the ICCAS.
