Description: 
This study found that specialists and PCPs perceive the quality of their communications with each other differently regarding referral and consultations. Physicians who did not receive timely communications regarding referrals or consultation reported that it impacted their ability to provide high quality care. This highlights the importance of effective referral as a clinical skill, and the need to improve inter-profession communication between primary care physicians and specialists.
