Transcript of Clinical Handover

Thank You!
Face to Face handover
Which one is the most effective?
Verbal handovers are more commonly used than written handovers.
Nurses also used handwritten notes during handover.
Medical staff were found to prefer verbal conversation handovers.
Only 33% of information was retained after the handover cycle.
Only 2.5% of information was retained after five handover cycles.
Using pre-prepared data sheets resulted in the full maintenance of data.
