Abstract: What is handover? Handover is the accurate, reliable communication of task-relevant information between doctors and patients and from one care-giver to another. This occurs in many situations in healthcare. Why is handover important? Improperly conducted handovers lead to wrong treatment, delays in medical diagnosis, life threatening adverse events, patient complaints, increased health care expenditure, increased length of stay hospital and a range of other effects that impact on the health system(1). This is how accurate performed and well-structured handovers improve patient safety, i.e. “absence of preventable harm to a patient during the process of health care” (2). How to teach handover? The best way to teach practical skills is, to let students perform the skill. To decrease the risk for real patients simulation is the teaching method of choice. Therefore and on the basis of the project’s preceding results (3,4), this curriculum is divided into three modules: Module 1 – Risk and Error Management Module 2 – Effective Communication Module 3 – Simulation
