Since more than thirty years, the World Health Organisation calls for effective interprofessional collaborative practice in health care. Around the world regional networks have been established to meet this requirement. If we want to assess, promote, and improve the quality of interprofessional collaboration in clinical practice and the quality of interprofessional teaching and learning in study programs of health care but also in continuous professional development, there is need for agreement on competences and specific skills that should be acquired. Also, organisational conditions and processes need to be taken into account. Finally, we need to consider team characteristics and specific contexts that may facilitate or inhibit collaboration.
The Interprofessional Practice & Education Quality Scales – IPEQS can be used to assess the functioning in team, the quality of the organisation, and the individual functioning. The scales have been used in recent studies to identify team types in residential care, to assess the impact of interprofessional support/intervention in acute settings, and to evaluate the quality of team consultation meetings in primary health care. This book describes the different components of the scales, its use in clinical as well as educational contexts, and the way it can be used on the PROSE Online Digital System – PODS. It provides opportunities for benchmarking. The book also focuses on the right conditions of quality management for an effective use of the tool.
