The Structured Interprofessional Bedside Rounds (SIBR) Toolkit is a resource developed through our work in practice transformation and team-based care through a collaboration with the UW Medical Center. This work builds on team science principles and competencies to promote effective and efficient teamwork.
SIBR is a model of inpatient care organization in which multiple professions (e.g., nursing, medicine, and pharmacy) come together at the patient’s bedside and utilize a consistent format to arrive at a plan of care collaboratively. The SIBR Toolkit has been developed as a resource for those interested in learning more about this rounding model, including those considering implementing SIBR. The toolkit provides an overview of SIBR and step-by-step guidance to implement and sustain this rounding model. This toolkit is a living document and will continue to be updated.
