HANDOVER IN ITU


ITU Handovers
I was really impressed by this simple mnemonic which helps with an excellent handover.
SHIFT method [learnt during an MPS(medical protection society) meeting,altered the contents slightly to suit ITU handovers]

S tatement (e.g.69 year old male patient presenting in type 2 respiratory failure.),
istory, (relevant)
I nvestigation (significant ones and pending), 
F ocus(fears/concerns),
T reatment (pending).

Try it !
