Congrats to Dr. Trey Coffey, Associate Director of C-QuIPS, whose IPASS study (led by Drs. Chris Landrigan and Amy Starmer) was recently published in NEJM

Dr. Coffey led the SickKids site in the multicentre study to improve patient safety by reducing communication-related medical errors through improved provider-to-provider communication through using the I-PASS Handoff Bundle.  Implementation of the bundle was associated with a 23% decrease in the incidence of medical errors and 30% decrease in injuries due to medical errors.  Trey and the IPASS Study are featured on Global here.  Read the published article in NEJM.
