Transition of Care Policy

University of Florida Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Program-Transitions of Care

  • We utilize the sign-out feature in EPIC to provide safe, accurate and up-to-date sign-outs. Sign out occurs from fellow to fellow, fellow to attending, and attending to attending.
  • Each Monday, all inpatient patients are discussed during our weekly multidisciplinary rounds and the service is turned over from attending to attending. Fellows present patients on our inpatient service when they are on call over the weekend. Fellow’s also present clinic patients sacheduled on their continuituy clinic days.
  • We use the I-PASS curriculum to teach and guide our handoff process.
  • Fellow’s and faculty complete the Institute for Healthcare Improvement (IGI) module found on the GMEC website.
