Publications

Deliverables:

PLEASE NOTE: We only share summaries of our reports in this section that are labeled as “public”. We disclosure the full information of our research outcomes as we aim to publish those in academic journals. Those journals ask for a strict embargo  before the publication release. Feel free to contact us to share latest insights and get access to the full reports that go beyond the public reports. After an empirical study gets accepted, we add a references to the full article to the website and also make a pre-print of the article available as open access version in the Dspace repository of the Open University of the Netherlands:

Library of relevant handover articles at Mendeley:

The PATIENT project created a virtual library around the core research articles on the handover topic. The library contains 140 relevant articles used in our reports and articles. It is an open group created at the Mendeley reference platform and will continue to be enriched with additional references.

We would like to encourage external parties to sign up for this group and to connect to the community of people working on these topics, gaining access to the collected bibliography but also contributing pointers to new relevant publications within this important field of research. Just go to Mendeley and sign up for the group: http://www.mendeley.com/groups/2554171/patient-handover/
