Patient handovers are crucial to warrant continuity of care and patient safety. The handoverEHR is an instrument that allows users to depict the main features of a clinical case in cognitive maps. We were interested whether this tool had an effect on the task load. A cross-over study with 30 nursing students was therefore conducted. Mental demand showed a statistical trend to be lower in cognitive map handovers than in the other handover types.
