Yellow Envelope clinical handover tool

A clinical handover tool designed for use within the North Brisbane and Moreton Bay catchment to support the transfer of clinical information for aged care residents to and from hospital.

The Yellow Envelope clinical handover tool enables:

  • effective clinical handover to other care settings
  • the ability to share resident documents including Advanced Care Health Directives
  • the ability to implement timely changes in resident care on return from other clinical settings.

Watch the Yellow Envelope clinical handover tool video.
