"Closing the loop": a mixed-methods study about resident learning from outcome feedback after patient handoffs.
Approach to Improving Safety
Setting of Care
Seeking feedback on patient outcomes after a patient handoff takes place may provide useful learning for the provider who initially cared for the patient and inform future clinical decision-making. In this mixed-methods study, residents identified both a lack of time and inadequate systems for tracking patients as significant barriers to learning from the outcomes of patients they had handed over to other teams.
