Recorded: October 05, 2016


Presenter: Christopher Landrigan, MD, MPH


Description:In a series of studies, the I-PASS Study Group has found that miscommunications are a major source of medical errors, but that programs to improve handoffs can significantly reduce medical errors and preventable adverse events, injuries due to medical errors.


Objectives:

  1. Review data on the relationship between handoffs and medical errors.
  2. Discuss the I-PASS program, a multi-faceted bundle of interventions to reduce handoff-related medical errors.
  3. Identify how I-PASS can be tailored for implementation across disciplines and hospitals.
