Guide to enhancing referrals and consultations between physicians.
College of Family Physicians of Canada, Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
There is growing knowledge and many new approaches developing in various regions of the country to improve the referral-consultation processes of care between referring and consulting physicians.
This guide on enhancing referrals and consultations between physicians is not intended to replace instruments already in place. It is complementary and may also help fill gaps where there are few or no tools in place to support good referrals and consultations, both within as well as between community and hospital settings. It is hoped that physicians will find this reference to be a valuable addition to practice. The Referral Form and Consultation Form are separately available as PDFs.
