Collaboration (IPEC) competencies, which are required by accreditors of the US health professions programmes, are important ( Begley, 2009 ). However, many barriers to in-person IPE have been documented consistently in the literature. Most common barriers to IPE include logistical and resource issues such as scheduling conflicts, geographical location/physical space and faculty time ( Begley, 2009 ; Oandasan & Reeves, 2005 ; Lawlis, Anson & Greenfield, 2014 ).
In addition to overcoming barriers, educators must also select the best instructional designmethods for IPE. Two

Background: The Duke Activity Status Index is a widely used instrument for measuring functional status in patients with cardiovascular disease. However, items and subscales on this instrument have not been validated for Thai patients with a previous myocardial infarction (MI).
Objective: To test the reliability and validity of the Thai version of the Duke Activity Status Index (DASI-T) in Thai patients with a previous MI using a cross-sectional study design.
Methods: The DASI-T was translated using forward and backward translation methods and administered to 100 MI patients from outpatient departments of two general hospitals in Thailand. Internal consistency was determined to test reliability. Two criterion measures (i.e. Canadian Cardiovascular Society (CCS) classification, SF-36 physical functioning subscale) were used to test the concurrent validity of the DASI-T. Age group and CCS classification were used to determine known-groups validity of the DASI-T.
Results: Cronbach’s α for the DASI-T total score was 0.76. No ceiling or floor effect was detected for the DASI-T total score. DASI-T total score was significantly correlated with the CCS classification (r = -0.68, P < 0.01) and SF-36 physical functioning subscale (r = 0.79, P < 0.01). DASI-T total scores could differentiate MI patients based on age (P = 0.040) or CCS classification (P = 0.000).
Conclusion: The DASI-T is a potentially reliable and valid instrument with which to assess functional status in MI patients and is also useful to evaluate a treatment effect and be a guideline for clinical purposes (i.e. exercise prescription, risk stratification).
Background: The Minnesota Living with Heart Failure Questionnaire (MLHFQ) is the most widely used diseasespecific instrument for heart failure (HF). However, a Thai version of the MLHFQ has not been available yet. Objective: Test the psychometric properties of the Thai version of the MLHFQ in terms of practicality, reliability, validity, and responsiveness, using a longitudinal design. Methods: One hundred eighty HF outpatients (mean age: 65±12 years; 58% male) were interviewed at Phramongkutklao Hospital, Bangkok between December 2008 and August 2009. Practicality was assessed with interview-times. Reliability was evaluated using Cronbach’s α and intraclass correlation coefficients (ICCs). Validity was tested with correlations between the MLHFQ scores and the SF-36 scores, confirmatory factor analysis, and known-groups validity. Responsiveness was observed with effect sizes (ES) and minimal clinically important differences (MCID). Results: The averaged interview-time was approximately five minutes. The Cronbach’s α and ICCs of the MLHFQ were 0.86-0.93 and 0.84-0.88, respectively. The MLHFQ scores were moderately correlated with the Short Form-36 Health Survey (SF-36) scores, and discriminated the patients with different classes by New York Heart Association. The average ES were medium, ranging from 0.2 to 0.5. The MCID ranged from 1.4 to 14.5 for improved patients and from -1.4 to -12.7 for worsened patients. Conclusion: The Thai version of the MLHFQ showed acceptable psychometric properties. It can be used as a disease-specific instrument to measure health-related quality of life of Thai patients with HF.
