The Interprofessional Practice (IPP) Case Rubric
Goal of the Rubric
rubric is developed as a framework to plan and coordinate interprofessional
practice (IPP). An IPP team uses this rubric as it meets on a regular basis to
develop a plan for an individual, monitor the effectiveness of the individual’s
plan, share perspectives, and determine changes that may need to be made.
IPP teams are composed of
service providers from different professional backgrounds and families who work
together to provide comprehensive l services and the highest quality of care to
individuals and their families/caregivers.
IPP teams share their knowledge and expertise to create outcomes that are
greater than the sum of the individual members.
Audiologists and speech-language pathologists (SLPs)
play key roles on IPP teams. IPP provides the opportunity to educate others
about our unique knowledge and skills and to share this expertise with other
team members. We also learn about the talents of teammates from other
professions. An IPP team shares responsibility for an individual’s communication, social, emotional, sensory and
other needs and engages in full-team planning, assessment, treatment, data
collection, and progress monitoring.
Successful IPP requires a well-developed team process that includes
- collaborative team facilitation;
- a shared goal/objective;
- specific roles or functions for individual members based on expertise, knowledge, and skills;
- flexibility and adaptability;
- deliberative and continuous team communication;
- mutual trust, respect, and support;
- team decision making;
- reflective practice (what's working, what's not working); and
- conflict management (resolving differences through consensus building).
