Recently someone in my clinical consult group asked how a clinicians practice is measured if they were ever called to explain their practice. The general answer is: GAPP - what is the Generally Accepted Professional Practice - in real words it means - What Would (your) Colleagues Do? (WWCD!)
That's what makes consultation groups SO invaluable - you learn what your colleagues would do so you can measure where your own practice fits in with the rest! Whether it's a question of "would you charge for a no show" or "would you have asked this question this way" - when we consult we learn together, grow together and serve our clients together - so you aren't really "alone" in the room with your client - you have your consult group right there with you!
