This project provides a structured evidence based literature review regarding the effectiveness of improvement interventions in clinical handover covering Australian and International published works. The review is presented in a manner that includes summaries of papers, reviews the strength of evidence and synthesizes major themes and issues. This review is specifically focused on clinical handovers within the healthcare sector, especially concentrating on literature published in the last five years and covering both quantitative and qualitative research. While the primary source of materials on clinical handover interventions is from within the Medline collection, the review also includes materials in journals outside that collection as well as other published material on the topic, including non-peer-reviewed papers, opinions and published reports.
