Reviewing Lab Work

Nope.  Phone calls, labs, paperwork (except for some government stuff), is all on your own time.

Guess so - that'd be nice here.  In Ontario I'm pretty sure you can't.  Which sucks, because I spend hella time doing that stuff.

I'd be shocked if any province pays you for time spent looking at bloodwork. Expect about an hour of unpaid stuff every day. One of those things that makes FM at the bottom of the pay grade :P

Only an hour?  I am currently at like 2-3 hours, though to be fair most of that is notes and consults.

now i get why alota fam docs never do bw

 

In general, physicians today still order too much blood work, even when it's not likely to be useful or affect their current management of an issue. Those who are either very cautious, or very aggressive, in their practice styles are more likely to do this. The current, albeit slow, trend toward decreasing utilization of resources is in part evidence-driven, and also from an increasing awareness of the cost involved. In many cases, getting bw is simply not indicated, and has nothing to do with a lack of personal compensation.
