The I-PASS Institute offers solutions for training residents on an evidence-based handoff communication method and assessing adherence over time.

 

Training, Assessment & eVIEW

I-PASS Training

An interactive, online, virtual environment in which residents complete both a verbal and written handoff, a handoff synthesis, and then compare each to a gold standard response. Training takes approximately 45 minutes total, and can be completed prior to or during orientation as applicable.

Do Your Residents Use a Standardized Process in Transitions of Care?

Think about these questions in relation to your program:

  • Does your program focus on transitions of care?
  • Do your residents use a standardized form of communication during handoffs?
  • Do you measure adherence to this communication method?
  • Do you measure the impact of this communication method on reductions in patient harm?
  • Has your written handoff document been adapted by the care area?
  • Does your written handoff document integrate with your EHR?
  • Is your program meeting the ACGME Transitions of Care Requirements?

If your response is "No" to any of the above, the I-PASS Patient Safety Institute can support you in answering "Yes", and becoming ACGME compliant. Our bundle of interventions has been optimized for implementation with residency programs.
