Study objective/intervention or exposures compared Design Sample (N) Intervention Outcomes studied (how measured) Results Level
To study on clinical processes and clinical handoffs so as to determine how the two disciplines could be combined to attain improved patient safety in handoffs. Systematic review Two studies reviewed for information comparison Recommended that there should be a use of SOPs (standard operating procedures), regularly audited clinical pathways, supporting software, and checklist so as to improve the handoffs.

 

Proper patient handoffs necessitated improved patient safety and quality information sharing and transfer between practitioners. There is a need for the health sector to initiate a trans-disciplinary methodology in research so as to respond to information quality issues that are related to clinical handoff processes, and in turn apply the research evidence to improve patient safety.

Study objective/intervention or exposures compared Design Sample (N) Intervention Outcomes studied (how measured) Results Level
Identification of current methods of passing and sharing patient information between practitioners, determine the dominant methods, and recommend the improvement strategies that could be deployed to enhance the efficiency in handoffs Integrative review Five patient handoffs used The study recommended the improvement methods that would encompass the conversion of all units to the electronic health record, electronic handoff communication modules and asynchronous multi-professional communication logs In patient handoffs, the common methods used were inclusive of verbal communication either via phone or in person, via written paper charts, and use of electronic records.

Verbal communication seemed to be highly preferred than the rest of the methods and it had reduced discrepancies.

84% of the participants preferred verbal communication during handoffs

82% of emergency department providers and 54% of those in admitting units were satisfied with verbal communication methodology in patient handoffs
