Since last summer, all PATIENT partners worked hard on the implemenation of tailored Handover Modules into undergraduate teaching at the 3 participating medical schools. Now we are happy to present first positive results from our experience and evaluations:

“Implementation of the Handover Modules -­ Feasibility Analysis” [WP5-Deliverable, Public Part]

During work package 5 of the PATIENT project, we adapted modules from the PATIENT Handover Training Curriculum to the individual requirements and needs of the respective implementation site, Aachen (D), Cork (IE) and Barcelona (ES) and rolled out three different training pilots. The process of adaption, implementation and evaluation of these trainings is presented this report.
Although final data analyses and more valid results are still pending, we can state that the implementation phase went according to plan and preliminary results are very positive.
Based on these results and our experiences, the handover trainings will be continued. We will proceed the data collection and analyses, to publish further results. And in conclusion the integration of the PATIENT Handover Training Curriculum into different medical educational programmes is intended and prepared.
