    Abstract

    The PATIENT project aims to provide pioneering solutions to improve training on handover practices in undergraduate medical education. The Training Needs Assessment (TNA) is considered as a first step in the design and delivery of training in the medical schools. The primary goal of the TNA is to identify and prioritize the skills needed to be developed in medical training and to determine the specifications and resources necessary to make this training successful. The objective of this work package was to design and conduct a systematic survey of knowledge and practice in handover learning and teaching, as well as assessment of innovative teaching approaches in medical schools across three EU countries (Germany, Ireland, Spain,). The TNA survey was built up upon the information gathered from a variety of resources, which contributed to control the content and construct validity of the instrument. The final sets of questions were selected according to relevance and frequency of inclusion resulting from expert opinions and literature review. The final survey was structured under the umbrella of 4 handover related dimensions assessing the opinion of the respondents about the importance and skill abilities related to handover, their experience in clinical practice, curriculum content and preferences about handover and level of confidence related to learning environment. The primary goal of the Training Needs Assessment (TNA) is to identify and prioritize the skills that need to be developed in training and to determine the specifications and resources necessary to make this training successful (14). Our purpose was to design and conduct a systematic survey of knowledge and practice in handover learning and teaching, as well as assessment of innovative teaching approaches in medical schools across three EU countries (Spain, Germany and Ireland).
