Impact of the communication and patient hand-off tool SBAR on patient safety: a systematic review.

Müller M, Jürgens J, Redaèlli M, et al. BMJ open. 2018;8:e022202.

Although this systematic review identified several studies supporting the use of SBAR as a communication tool to improve patient safety, the authors suggest the evidence is moderate and that further research is needed.
