High-fidelity interprofessional education can help to create realistic patient scenarios for active student engagement however there is a need to measure whether it has an impact on interprofessional teamwork. The purpose of this practicum was to demonstrate advanced nursing competencies by developing a data analysis plan for the Interprofessional Teamwork Questionnaire. That questionnaire is designed to measure nursing, medicine, and pharmacy students’ changes in knowledge and attitudes towards high fidelity interprofessional education. A literature review was conducted, and consultations were held with researchers and a statistician to inform the development of the data analysis plan. The data analysis plan includes methods for analyzing, summarizing, interpreting and displaying the quantitative data from the questionnaire. The data analysis plan considers measures of central tendency, consideration of normal distribution, measures of variability, and measures of symmetry to determine whether parametric or non-parametric measures are appropriate in data analysis. Two non-parametric measures that are appropriate for analysis of the quantitative data collected from the Interprofessional Teamwork Questionnaire include the Wilcoxon Matched-Pairs Signed Rank Test, and Friedman’s two-way analysis of variance.
