New Vertigo referral pathway helps family doctors navigate solutions

May 3, 2017

A new Vertigo referral pathway, developed by the Division of Neurology in conjunction with the Health Systems Support zone committee comprised of Primary Care Networks, specialist divisions and Alberta Health Services, has been added to Specialist LINK.

The pathway helps family doctors navigate the Vertigo referral process and clearly outlines how the Specialist LINK service interfaces in the process.

Currently, the specialist partnerships have grown to include Endocrinology, Gastroenterology, Hepatology, Neurology, Pediatrics, Respirology and Rheumatology specialists and HSS is in discussion with several other groups. To date, over 1,600 advice calls have been made to specialists by family doctors.
