Quality Referral Evolution (QuRE) is a collaborative initiative designed to make quality consultation/referral communication competencies a part of undergraduate and postgraduate medical education in Alberta, as well as an online self-study for practicing physicians and surgeons in the province.
Do you know why it is important?
By offering evidence-informed teaching and learning resources to future and practicing physicians and surgeons, the quality of communication and standards of practice in the consultation/referral processes will improve, resulting in improved access and safer care for Albertans.
Who are we?
The initiative is developing best evidence-informed educational resources for teaching and learning the communication skills needed to provide quality referral and consultation. This includes a two-sided pocket QuRE Checklist, residency workshops, and training modules for continuous medical learning.
View the Learn section on this page to find resources that will help your practice.
Watch our video to learn more about QuRE.
A comprehensive list of literary articles discussing referral and consultation practices, challenges, initiatives and education is also available.
The QuRE Checklist is small enough to slip into a lab coat and sturdy enough to survive your workspace. And they’re free! Order for yourself or your workplace and we’ll mail them right to your door. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to order.
Be part of the referral evolution. Upcoming QuRE workshops are scheduled at the University of Alberta and the University of Calgary this fall.
