Learner handover (also called educational handover or forward feeding) has taken on increased importance in the context of competency-based medical education (CBME). Assessment in CBME should be continuous, involve multiple low-stakes assessments in the work-place and be part of a larger program of assessment. Our current system of training however is fragmented, organized in rotations where trainees move from one rotation to another. Faculty supervisors thus waste time rediscovering strengths and learning needs already determined by previous assessors. Sharing information about the learner across rotations may therefore enable more effective and efficient tailoring of the educational experience as the trainee moves towards competence. Learner handover, therefore, is highly relevant to the Medical Council of Canada theme “Assessment along the continuum”.
