CONSULTATION MEDIUM USED

CONSULTATION MEDIUM USED identifies the communication mechanism used to relay information between the CARE PROFESSIONAL and the PERSON who is the subject of the consultation, during a CARE ACTIVITY.

A record of the consultation must be retained in the PATIENT's records.

Telephone contacts solely for informing PATIENTS of results are excluded.
