Pocket Cards

Within the PATIENT project we developed Pocket Cards to help our students to structure their handover in simulation scenarios and also at the ward. The different Pocket Cards were applicable to emergency medicine, intensive care and general ward handovers. The Pocket Cards are designed to fit into white coats.

The PATIENT Consortium Team did NOT create new handover structures or checklists for these trainings but adapted existing checklists and mnemonics to make them easy to carry with the student through the hospital. The original references are cited at the bottom of each Pocket Card.

The PATIENT Pocket Cards are available in English and German. It is possible to contact the PATIENT Partners via the Project’s website for more information, original references and intended use of the Pocket Cards.
