Experiences with Referrals: Results of two surveys.

Canadian Collaborative Centre for Physician Resources, August, 2012.

“The following bulletin is based on the results of two national surveys to physicians practising in Canada. The first is a CMA survey based solely on the topic of referrals with over 3,000 respondents conducted in 2011.1 The second is the 2010 National Physician Survey which included questions for non-primary care physicians (5,474 respondents) about providing and receiving referral reports.2 Both surveys tried to identify the main issues within the referral system and solicit suggestions for improvements.”
