This is an excellent and very current document that represents the hard work and collaboration across many disciplines of experts who identified core competencies for interprofessional collaboration.  Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science uses this document as a framework for evaluating our first year experience for new graduate students in medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy, nurse anesthesia, physician assistant, etc. who participate in an interprofessional core curriculum. I have personally used this document as a foundation for parts of a recent research grant proposal.
