Fast forward rounds: an effective method for teaching medical students to transition patients safely across care settings.
Ouchida K, Lofaso VM, Capello CF, Ramsaroop S, Reid MC. J Am Geriatr Soc. 2009;57:910-917.

Transitions in care between inpatient and outpatient settings are an increasing concern for patient safety, and professional societies are dedicating resources to address the issue. In teaching institutions, there is growing emphasis on implementing systems-based practice curricula for trainees to similarly highlight the importance of patient safety principles. This study describes an innovative multimodal educational intervention that combines didactics, an interactive video, and team-based learning to increase transitional care knowledge and competence in the discharge process. A past AHRQ WebM&M perspective and interview discuss care transitions.
