Schmidt T, Kocher DR, Mahendran P, Denecke K. Dynamic Pocket Card for Implementing ISBAR in Shift Handover Communication. Stud Health Technol Inform. Sep 3, 2019;267:224-229.

Structured communication methods such as SBAR (situation, background, assessment, recommendation) or ISBAR (identify, situation, background, assessment, recommendation)

 were developed to improve handoffs in the hospital, particularly from nursing to physicians, and to reduce the impact of poor communication on adverse events. This study presents a digital pocket card incorporating ISBAR standards that can be used by nurses to facilitate patient handoffs and reporting.
