The Interdisciplinary Education Perception Scale (IEPS) was developed to gauge professionally oriented perceptions and related affective domains for participants in interdisciplinary education programs. The Readiness for Interprofessional Learning Scale (RIPLS) was developed to assess the attitudes and perceptions of students and professionals to determine their readiness for interprofessional learning and change. RIPLS is proposed to measure a change in attitudes, the effect of different interventions, and the effectiveness of interventions on changing perceptions and attitudes.
