UNIVERSITY HEALTH CARE HOSPITALS AND CLINICS GRADUATE MEDICAL EDUCATION RESIDENT POLICIES AND PROCEDURES _____________________________________________________________________________ HANDOFFS AND TRANSITIONS OF CARE GME 9.6 Review Date: August 2012 Chapter: Training Environment I. PURPOSE To promote continuity of care and patient safety in residents’ learning and working environment, the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education (ACGME) requires that programs and sponsoring institutions minimize the number of patient care transitions, implement a structured and monitored handoff process, train residents for competency in handoffs, and make schedules readily available that list residents and attending physicians responsible for each patient's care. In addition to resident-to-resident patient transitions, residents must care for patients in an environment that maximizes effective communication among all individuals or teams with responsibility for patient care in the healthcare setting.
