Hello everyone and welcome to the next episode of 3P, Pills, Pearls and Patients. I'm your host, Dr. Marina Malak. So, as you know, on 3P, I strive to hold a centre view of all things, you know. I certainly will present my own thoughts, the evidence, what's happening in the media. But I always welcome everyone else's input. And I think that's really important for us to be able to step out of what we are used to and our biases and perceptions and take the opinions of other people. Specifically in medicine, we have to do this a lot, which is also known as consultations or making referrals. Today's episode is going to focus specifically on eConsult
