ISBAR Communication Tool
The ISBAR Communication Tool can be used to handover patient care to a GP or other carer:
Introduce yourself: your name and location, name of the resident.
What are the current concerns or reason for review?
What is the relevant medical history and co-morbidities?
Is the medical chart available for reference?
Check all vital signs and have the observations ready for reference.
Note irregularities in the A-G Physical Assessment.
What do you think is happening?
What outcome do you want? (eg, GP review today? Rapid Response Team review?)
