Perioperative Handoffs: Achieving Consensus on How to Get it Right

Handoffs in health care are potential patient safety risks, but are also opportunities to identify missed problems. Perioperative handoffs, including those occurring intraoperatively, from the OR to PACU or OR to ICU, have both common and unique issues. In this 1-day consensus-building workshop, APSF aims to identify critical elements of handoff processes, including how to conduct handoffs safely and how to implement new handoff processes that work locally.

Jeffrey B. Cooper, PhD, and Meghan B. Lane-Fall, MD, MSHP, will be the co-moderators of this workshop, which will include expert presentations and panel discussions. The primary focus of this meeting will be achieving consensus about key issues through closely facilitated working groups. If you have expertise or an interest in helping to improve handoffs, consider participating.
