The DCE is a type of survey commonly used to measure preferences around the provision of health care Purpose Statement To describe and compare patients' and nurses' preferences for the implementation of bedside handover Research Question Patient and nurse preferences for implementation of bedside handover: Do they agree? Outcome All participants strongly support handover at the bedside and want patients to participate although patient and nurse preferences for various aspects of bedside handover differ Setting Two Australian hospitals. Sample Adult patients (n=401) and nurses (n=200) recruited from medical wards. Method A discrete choice experiment (DCE) was used to elicit the preferences of patients in and nurses working on medical wards across two Australian hospitals. Key Findings of the Study Both patient and nurse participants preferred handover at the bedside rather than elsewhere ( P <.05). Recommendations of the Researcher The study identified areas where patient and nurse preferences differed, particularly around enabling family and friends to participate and how sensitive information is handed over. An understanding of these factors and their consideration in the development of frameworks guiding the process and design of bedside handover can be expected to improve the implementation of this important patient centred safety initiative in hospitals, such that it is most acceptable to patients and more likely to be implemented by nurses. 8

PICOT STATEMENT - IMPROVING PATIENT SAFETY AND SATISFACTION Criteria Article 5 APA-Formatted Article Citation with Permalink Ford, Y., Heyman, A., & Chapman, Y. (2014). Patients' Perceptions of Bedside Handoff: The Need for a Culture of Always. Retrieved from 10.1097/NCQ.0000000000000056 How Does the Article Relate to the PICOT Question? Bedside handoff with patient engagement not only meets the Joint Commission standards but also contributes to improved patient safety Quantitative, Qualitative (How do you know?) Quantitative: This study identifies patients' perceptions of the bedside handoff through direct and quantitative measurement. The statistically significant findings from a survey of 103 medical surgical adult patients demonstrate that registered nurse bedside handoff has a positive effect on patient perceptions of safety, understanding, and satisfaction. Purpose Statement The purpose of this study was to identify patients' perceptions of the bedside handoff by means of direct and quantitative measurement. Research Question to identify patients' perceptions of bedside handoffs by directly asking patients about their experiences. Outcome The findings demonstrate that RN bedside handoff has a positive impact on patients' perceptions of safety, understanding, and satisfaction, but only when it is done consistently. Setting The study was conducted on 2 inpatient medical-surgical departments at Borgess Medical Center, a regional medical center in southwest Michigan. Sample A convenience sample of prospective patient participants was identified from the inpatient census of the 2 nursing departments 9
