Event Details

The Emergency Medicine Patient Safety Foundation is pleased to bring to you this important and timely webinar entitled: Safer Sign Out - Establishing a New Standard for Physician Handoffs 

Presenter: Drew Fuller, MD, MPH, FACEPl, RN, MN, CEN, CPEN, FAEN

In response to the risk associated with communication errors during transitions of care, The Joint Commission has called for the standardization of handoff procedures.  Few models exist to help standardize physician practice in this area. Safer Sign Out™ is a new tool that provides a structured, practical, efficient and broadly accepted methodology for standardizing physician hand-offs in the high-risk field of emergency medicine. The key components of the tool were developed on a risk-based approach to focus on specific areas of vulnerability within the sign out process.  The design of Safer Sign Out  was developed with established evidence, expert consensus, and clinician feedback.

This presentation will highlight valuable lessons and potential pitfalls for engaging physicians and implementing systems for standardizing communications in a single institution or across a healthcare system.
