Pronovost P, Berenholtz S, Dorman T, et al. Journal of critical care. 2003;18:71-5.

This study sought to improve communication during daily rounds in the intensive care unit (ICU) through implementation of an explicit daily goals sheet, which was completed by physicians and nurses and included both clinical and patient safety goals. Implementation was associated with both improved communication among team members and reduction in ICU length of stay.
