This is an excellent area in need of more study and improvement and this article definitely brought that to light. Currently with many physician practices including Nephrology being computerized one would think that a clinical summery for a office visit could be sent to all the patients physcians , This would keep them informed of the pt status and accurately tell them of any changes that are made in treatment. We could also look at our unit to see if we can improve as well in our use of SBAR when reporting pt changes.
