This Health Foundation Snapshot report offers a set of brief case studies examining how three trusts have worked to improve communication and handovers in their maternity units. The report identifies key actions that can be taken and distils key lessons learnt. The approaches discussed include implementing standardised communication practices such as the 'SBAR' approach, daily briefings, briefings prior to elective caesarean sections along with debriefings afterwards.
