Educators in healthcare face significant challenges trying to improve interprofessional teamworking skills, with a lack of clarity on how to teach and evaluate such skills. Previously, the team objective structured clinical encounter (TOSCE) has been reported as a teaching and assessment tool, but it has been used primarily in homogenous groups of undergraduates. An interprofessional team of educators set out to evaluate the TOSCE as a teaching intervention amongst a large interprofessional group of postgraduate nurses and midwives. After the TOSCE, 83% of participants reported that they were more aware of potential weaknesses in teamworking and 60% felt more able to work in a team. Mean Likert scale ratings were 4/5 for usefulness, enjoyment and relevance. The TOSCE is a feasible tool for teamwork skill assessment in the demanding postgraduate interprofessional setting and requires further investigation to ascertain its potential for formative and summative assessment of skills.
