Theoretical Frameworks of Clinical Handovers in Healthcare Settings

March 18, 2023 Disease and Health 0

Patient handover is the pivot for communicating patients’ information with healthcare professionals. The current study explores the hypothetical frameworks upholding corporate communication and patient handover, constituting their ontology and epistemology. Clinical handover is a direct transfer of information meal the transmission of clinical outline, liability and accountability ‘tween healthcare professionals to aid patients’ continuity of care, joint awareness of patients’ environments and planned management. Several hypothetical frameworks support the stages of handover. According to social believes and the frameworks proposed in the current study, dispassionate handovers are social constructions. Handovers’ definitive truth and form are thus achieved through constant interpersonal interplays, sharing of meanings, and spreading collective knowledge inside healthcare teams. Hence, on account of handover complexity, the author examines how different specialists use social conventions to form information about patients sharable and comprehensible to each appendage of a team or other crews, and how areas of misunderstanding are always a challenge when social constructions and handovers happen.
