Situation, background, assessment and recommendations (SBAR) — this tool is useful for trainee and consultant anaesthetists, along with recovery nurses in a paediatric setting. The tool can be adapted for adult patients.
This checklist can help to improve reliability, reduce variation and deliver improved handovers — in order to maintain the continuity of care.
This handover tool allows a safety pause (S.A.F.E) for appropriate monitoring to be attached to the patient, before a structured SBAR handover commences.
