The I-PASS Handoff Bundle was created by The I-PASS Study Group to teach a standardized approach to handoffs in inpatient settings. This collection is a comprehensive, evidence-based, and consensus-driven suite of educational materials created for a multi-site study that consists of six major complementary components:
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Core Resident Workshop2-hour didactic and interactive session that teaches I-PASS techniques and concepts
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Handoff Simulation Exercises1-hour interactive role-play session to allow for practicing of techniques learned in the resident workshop or online module
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Computer ModuleElectronic tool that allows for independent learning and review of I-PASS concepts and techniques
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Campaign ToolkitCollection of materials to ensure adoption and implementation of the I-PASS handoff process and change institutional culture
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Faculty Development ResourcesSet of resources to educate and train faculty or handoff champions for the implementation of the I-PASS handoff program
I-PASS Handoff Curriculum: Faculty Observation ToolsSeries of assessment tools designed to be used by institutions implementing the I-PASS handoff process
The I-PASS Study and I-PASS Handoff Bundle were specifically designed to target pediatric resident physicians. However, the I-PASS Handoff Bundle can serve as a framework for handoffs of care for multiple learner types and environments. Modifications of the I-PASS Handoff Bundle for additional provider types and sub-specialties are underway, but not yet final. Additional resources will be posted when available.
