What are Pro Tips?
This feature provides optional, general advice on what kind of relevant patient history, physical exam, or test information clinicians can consider including in an eConsult. We hope Pro Tips will improve clinician-to-clinician communications and the educational aspect of eConsults.
How were these tips derived?
Our team has developed this advice based on feedback from clinicians like
yourself and feedback from our specialists.
Are these guidelines?
These are not clinical guidelines. Rather, Pro Tips are general advice on what
kind of relevant patient history, physical exam, or test information to
consider including for your selected specialty. Our team has developed this
advice based on feedback from clinicians like yourself, across primary care and specialty care.
What if a suggested tip does not apply to my clinical case?
The goal of “eConsult Pro Tips” is to offer optional suggestions on
information that might be helpful to include in an eConsult. It’s up to you to
make the decision on what to include!
