I-PASS: Integrating High Quality Handoffs into TeamSTEPPS and Hospital Care

AHRQ is hosting a webinar on Wednesday, May 13 from 1 to 2 p.m. ET. In this webinar, Christopher Landrigan, MD, MPH, Research Director of the Inpatient Pediatrics Service at Boston Children's Hospital and Associate Professor of Medicine and Pediatrics at Harvard Medical School, will be joined by Army Col. Clifton Yu, MD, Director of Medical Education at the Walter Reed National Mil­itary Medical Center. They will present their work on the I-PASS study, which aims to improve safety by standardizing provider communication, particularly during transitions in care. Drs. Landrigan and Yu serve as lead investigators in this project. Their presentation will seek to:

  1. Review the literature on handoffs, miscommunications and patient safety.
  2. Describe I-PASS, a bundle of handoff interventions inspired and informed by the TeamSTEPPS program.
  3. Discuss the results of a multi-center study that implemented I-PASS in nine North American hospitals.
