  SBAR - Situation Background Assessment Recommendation  
The SBAR technique is derived from the US Navy creating a common method for effective information transfer by providing a standardized form of clear and concise communications among healthcare providers. There are countless opportunities that involve transferring vital patient information:
• EMT to Nurse
• Nurse to Nurse
• Nurse to Physician
• Physician to Nurse
• Patient transfer to another facility or level of care
• New policy or procedure directives
Safety is a by-product of standardized execution, and standardized communication through SBAR is a cornerstone of this methodology.
