Abstract

The authors are discussing the results of the international literature with regards to referrals between ambulatory physicians. There are still few studies on this problem and the methodologies used are often too different to make valid comparisons. However, the earned results suggest more questions than they give answers to the determinants of the referral process. This can be explained by the multidimensionality of factors which are involved in the decision to refer a patient to another practitioner, particularly by the complex interaction between the characteristics of each patient, practitioner and the sanitary system itself.
