CanMEDS handover

The addition of a new key competency for patient handover is a major change from the 2005 to 2015 version of the CanMEDS Collaborator Role. Handover refers to the temporary or permanent transfer of responsibility and accountability for some or all aspects of care for a patient or group of patients.
