Porqué el SBAR es tan popular? – IHI

What Makes SBAR So “Sticky”?


What is it about SBAR?

SBAR — which stands for Situation-Background-Assessment-Recommendation — is a communication framework health professionals use to efficiently and concisely convey crucial information.

For years, it’s been one of the most popular search terms on the IHI website. Why?

I suspect it has something to do with its elegance:

  • S=Situation (a concise statement of the problem)
  • B=Background (pertinent and brief information related to the situation)
  • A=Assessment (analysis and considerations of options — what you found/think)
  • R=Recommendation (action requested/recommended — what you want)

Here’s an example of a respiratory therapist using SBAR to communicate with a physician regarding a patient’s situation:
