Strengthening Medical Imaging-GP Processes and Communication
The project strengthened:
- Communication between Family Physicians, Radiologists, Medical Imaging (MI) staff, and clinic staff;
- Supported effective referrals to MI; and
- Improved clarity about urgent and non-urgent referrals
The project developed materials to support these aims and hosted education events to bolster enhanced skills and connection. The project had impressive effective referral results. If Members would like education materials on Choosing Wisely / Appropriateness including handouts on appropriate CT, IV, Shoulder Pain; Interventional and Musculoskeletal Radiology; limitations of tests performed; MRI vs. CT scan ordering, and tips for completing referrals, or the ARH MI Referrals and Levels of Urgency Card, please contact the Abbotsford Division at firstname.lastname@example.org.
