Medical Decision Making and Referral for New Nurse PractitionersNov 10, 2020
⭐️ CME Opportunity for this video below ⭐️
Are you referring too much as a new nurse practitioner? I have this conversation a lot with the new nurse practitioners that I mentor.
This is really about two questions: how to make medical decisions, and when’s the “right time” to refer.
When to Refer to a Specialist
In this video, I lay out the three main options you have when it comes to making sound medical decisions, and the moral of the story when it comes to deciding when to refer out.
(FYI: to slow down the audio speed, hit the gear symbol in the bottom right corner and change it to .75x or .5x. Closed captions are also located at the bottom R hand corner of the video.)
