CRC Press, Dec 14, 2018 - Medical - 136 pages
This exciting series is unique in providing advice on management, leadership and development for those in the Allied Health Professions (AHP). This practical and comprehensive guide contains all the information you need to set up a self referral service successfully, including answers to frequently asked questions, sample referral forms, a sample poster, datasets, guides for consistency, an anticipated referral calculator tool and a complete glossary of terms. "Over the last ten years we have lost count of the inquiries we've fielded from all over the United Kingdom and from many other countries worldwide. We've been contacted by a wide range of healthcare providers, clinical staff from a variety of professions; therapists, nurses and doctors, service managers, professional bodies and healthcare policy makers and the questions have been the same. This is a practical guide that should help to take you relatively stress-free through the very important key stages of preparation. It will provide useful hints and tips to assist you in your decision making and will ensure as successful and painless a transition as possible." - Lesley Holdsworth and Valerie Webster, in the Introduction.
