The Curbside Consult in Pain Management
“Hey, can I ask you a quick question?” I don’t know, can you? Ah…the curbside consult. They can occur anywhere: the hallway, the parking lot, the bathroom! Who asks for and provides curbside consults? We all do! Why do practitioners request a curbside consult of another practitioner? To confirm what they believe they already know, to get a quick answer to a question, to continue their medical education, to determine if a formal consultation is called for, and to negotiate an appropriate course of treatment for a particular patient. This fast-paced presentation will review the who, why, where, when, and what of curbside consults. Participants will also learn about a best practice model for communication called SBAR : Situation, Background, Assessment, Recommendation. You’ll be such a popular curbside consultant, you’ll be able to set up shop in the parking garage!
