Effective Prehospital Patient Handoffs Between Providers 0.50 Effective Prehospital Patient Handoffs Between Providers was designed to provide a common process for reporting patient information during the prehospital care process. Communication of the patient's prehospital care from all level of providers is essential in ensuring the continuation of care in a unified and effective manner and to help provide a seamless transition in their care. This course expands on the idea of effective patient handoffs to the field providers that often transfer patients between various levels of care from first-responder through advanced paramedics. Very often, initial observations of those initial responders are unavailable to subsequent responders - either because the patient has been moved, or the scene itself has been altered. Without an effective process to communicate these details, important information can and will be lost.
