Arbuckle MR, Reardon CL, Young JQ. Acad Psychiatry. 2015;39:132-138.
According to this survey study, a substantial minority of psychiatry residency training programs reported that they did not provide formal training in handoffs, which is now required by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education. Barriers to developing such training included difficulty attaining buy-in from clinicians and standardizing handoffs across different sites.
