Enhancing quality of trainee-written consultation notes.

Abstract

Inpatient consultations between generalists and specialty care providers represent a specific situation where poor information exchange between physicians could result in delayed diagnoses, inadequate follow-up, or duplication of services. Unfortunately, subspecialty trainees do not reeive formal instruction in how to provide an effective onsultation. As a result, consultation notes are variable in quality and often do not meet the needs of referring providers or patients.
