One chance to get it right: improving clinical handovers for better symptom control at end of life
Congratulations to Collaborative members Gabriel Goldraij, Vilma Tripodoro, Christina Gerlach, Catriona Mayland, and Dagny Faksvåg Haugen who have recently published further output from the ERANet-LAC CODE project in BMJ Open Quality.
The paper describes how feedback from bereaved relatives was used to inform the development and implementation of a new intervention - the I-PASS clinical mnemonic tool - in one acute general hospital in Córdoba City, Argentina. The study demonstrated a marked improvement in patient comfort and care as perceived by the family carers of dying patients.
