Teamwork and Handoffs

The Teamwork and Handoffs session has two components:

  1. Assessment of teamwork knowledge
  2. Handoffs Workshop

Assessment of teamwork knowledge

In Year 1, you have received 8 hours of teamwork education. It is time to assess what you have picked up. Viewing a few video clips, the challenge will be to see if you can identify teamwork skills from the Teamwork Scheme! The Collaborative Practice Unit of Medical Skills would like you to bring your laptops in order to fill out the online exercise.

This is the video to be used during the exercise: video link.

Handoffs Workshop

Handoffs are high-risk communication activities that may affect patient safety. Omission of critical information and transfer of erroneous information are common. This workshop will provided you with a potential model to use during handover!

The facilitator will stick closely to this lesson plan, as there is a lot of content and activities to run through in this interactive workshop!
