Background & Purpose
- Interprofessional education (IPE) is fast becoming an integral part of the education of health professions students. To meet this aim, it is important to provide students with the skills needed for interprofessional success, but also to use reliable and valid measures to help students and clinicians to recognize characteristics of well-functioning teams.
- The Jefferson Teamwork Observation Guide (JTOG) was created for health professions students to evaluate teams in action by rating behaviors indicative of good team work.
- The JTOG, mapped to the 2011 Interprofessional Education Collaborative Expert Panel (IPEC) core competencies, was developed over two years to help health professions students understand the characteristics of high functioning teams and to fill a gap in the literature around validated, competency-based assessment tools. The tool contains 14 Likert scale items and three qualitative items.
- The purpose of this presentation is to describe the JTOG’s reliability and validity to support its use in education and practice.
