SHARED Handover Form
Handover is an expectation of good practice and professionalism, and are to take place for every staff change.

Effective verbal handover can only occur if all support workers hold a similar understanding and ‘mental model’ of the process and expectations of them. The suggested model with Apex Care is S.H.A.R.E.D.:
  • What is the headline of the shift - Get the important info out first e.g. Significant changes in care, Risk events, Changes in care management, or if there isnt anything - state No Headline
  • Discuss what has occurred during the shift
  • Discuss any appointments attended during the previous shift or to be attended during the current shift
  • Discuss information needed to keep everyone safe E.g. Reportable events
  • Outline any additional expectations of the next shift including recommendations/ expectations
