To Refer or Not to Refer, That is the Question: Parts 1 and 2

Referral is an important process whenever the client or patients’ needs exceed the professionals’ skills or scope of practice.

Further, we will provide support for professionals to build their own heuristics to better deal with ambivalent circumstances.
