Multicenter development, implementation, and patient safety impacts of a simulation-based module to teach handovers to pediatric residents.

Johnson DP, Zimmerman K, Staples B, et al. Hospital pediatrics. 2015;5:154-9.

Handoff improvement is a national patient safety priority, and residency programs are required to provide formal training in signouts.
