- Describe the role of communication failures in medical errors and preventable adverse events
- Articulate the need for high-quality patient handoffs to reduce the likelihood of communication failures
- Describe the implementation of I-PASS evidence-based handoff bundle and its impact on medical errors and patient safety
- Utilize some of the strategies discussed in practice as appropriate
