Effectiveness of different nursing handover styles for ensuring continuity of information in hospitalised patients. An accurate handover of clinical information is of great importance to continuity and safety of care.

During the last decade the call for interventions to improve handovers has increased (...) . These interventions aim to reduce the risk of miscommunication, misunderstanding and the omission of critical information.To determine the effectiveness of interventions designed to improve hospital nursing handover, specifically:to identify which nursing handover style(s) are associated with improved outcomes for patients in the hospital setting and which nursing handover style(s) are associated with improved nursing process outcomes.We searched the following electronic databases for primary studies: Cochrane
