Physio, Medico or Let It Go? – Booklet
One of the most powerful skills for any medic to have is to know when and where to refer a patient when assistance is required beyond their own circle of expertise. This is especially true for health professionals servicing remote locations, where the desire to act fast often competes with the upheaval and cost of increased travel for specialized services.
Physio, Medico or Let It Go? is a 28 page booklet written by Australian Musculoskeletal Physiotherapist Karen Finnin. Finnin succinctly summarises the criteria required to guide Medic decision making for accurate referral of patients with musculoskeletal injuries. Physio, Medico or Let It Go? will ensure patients obtain appropriate follow up – either rehabilitation services, doctor opinion or self management.
