Course Outline

This one-day inter-professional training course has been designed for health care professionals working within an inpatient mental health setting. It focuses upon how we share information between colleagues, other professions and services, focusing in particular on the handover process. Through the use of simulation scenarios, which follow a patient’s journey from admission to discharge, participants are given the chance to practice skills and explore a range of human factors which may impact on information sharing. After each simulation a guided debrief prompts further reflection, discussion and sharing of good practice.

Through strengthening skills in information sharing, the course aims to improve continuity in patient care and enhance patient safety.

This course is suitable for a range of health care professionals working within an inpatient setting, including: doctors, nurses, support workers, physiotherapists, occupational therapists, pharmacists and other allied health professionals.
