Patient Safety Highlights 2016 - Structured Handoffs Improve the Care of the Critically Ill

THIS IS AN ONLINE ACTIVITY. Hard copies are not available.

This pro-con will examine challenges in patient safety that occur during handoff of a critically ill peroperioperative patient. It will also discuss the concept and implementation of a structured handoff protocol with integration into electronic medical record. Lastly, this panel will review the evidence for and against the argument that a structured handoff protocol reduces errors and improves patient safety.
