During your time in subspecialty clinic elective, you should be learning about the referral process through history taking, physical exam, pre-referral work up, and patient experience. You should also be learning about post-referral management for commonly referred conditions through observing conversations between specialist and family and/or clarifying specific post-referral management directly with attending. Please complete the below form for each ½ day of elective time and upload to Medhub upon completion. Your responses will be analyzed to help improve your subspecialty outpatient experience.
Please comment on specifics:
What work up or intervention will the specialist do for this patient? Please comment on specifics:
When should the patient follow up (if at all), with whom (specialist and/or PMD), and why? Please comment on specifics:
What are the roles for the specialist and/or for the referring provider after the consultation? Please comment on specifics:
Was the reason for initial referral clear to the family – if not, what could the referring doctor have done to make it clear?
Do you think the post-referral plan was understood by the family- if not, how could it have been better understood?
What did you learn that will change your management (ie. new medical knowledge, aspects of care coordination of care/referral process, etc)?
