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.),
H istory, (relevant)
I nvestigation (significant ones and pending),
F ocus(fears/concerns),T reatment (pending).
Try it !
