    The World Health Organization lists inaccurate handovers as one of its High 5 patient safety risks (WHO, 2011). Improperly conducted handovers lead to
 wrong treatment, delays in medical diagnosis,
life threatening adverse events, increased
 health care expenditure, increased hospital
length of stay and a range of other effects
 that impact on the health system (Kripalani et al., 2007). The PATIENT project addresses this challenge by using innovative learning approaches in medicine with mobile devices in role-based learning scenarios to enable authentic skill development for students and the workplace. The primary objective of the PATIENT project is the implementation of a handover study module for undergraduate medical students on a European scale. The target study module will take advantage of innovative teaching and learning methods to improve handover procedures. Therefore, the module will combine formal, informal, problem- and role-based learning scenarios in simulation settings. It will benefit from the HANDOVER Toolbox, the CLAS mobile application, and additional apps that might be required to standardise the handover training in Europe.
