Cal in Get Medical Referrals My Rant about Misleading Info Put Out By Some SchoolsBrenda in Get Medical Referrals My Rant about Misleading Info Put Out By Some Schools

Yes, You Can Get Medical Referrals

Sometimes When You Ask for Referrals “No” Means “No” & Sometimes It Means “Know”!

Then I Go On a Rant – Watch Out for Misleading Hypnosis Schools

Brenda and I are back to let you in on some insider info on how to get medical referrals. In this hypnosis training video, we immediately present you with a truth, “Sometimes ‘no’ means ‘no’ and sometimes ‘no’ means ‘know’. And, by “know” we mean that the doctor needs to know more and it is up to you to get them into the know.

Here is a BIG nugget for you… Did you know that there is another way other than asking for a doctor’s referrals that may enable you to work with a medical problem? Yes, there is, and I’ll let you in on that alternative technique in this hypnosis training video.

NOTE: Of course, Brenda and I are not lawyers and are not giving out legal advice here. We are giving you business and hypnosis information based on our experience. The laws where you work can vary widely from the circumstances we talk about in this episode of Hypnosis, Etc.

I also caution you about how doing this all wrong could actually wind you up in court for “practicing medicine without a license” (depending on where you live.). I know you would rather not have those kinds of legal issues and expenses! Here is how to avoid that snare!

We share with you whose needs comes first when it comes to working with any medical issue. I recommend that you contact the NGH Chapter near you to get the inside scoop on what kind of legal requirements there are where you live when it comes to working with medical issues. This is just one more reason to be a National Guild of Hypnotists member.

Next I rant! Remember, “If you can’t afford to do it right, then you can’t afford to do it!” I wish more hypnosis trainers and schools would adopt this as a motto. Watch out for misleading statements on their websites such as “job placement available”, and so on. These misleading statements can cause you to enroll in a program that is not going to do what they promised. I’ll tell you the story about what happened when I called them on their false advertising.

    Quick question about the referrals. You mentioned a courtesy call or letter to the doc about working with their patient when a referral isn’t required. I would think that you would want/ need permission from your client. I sure wouldn’t want anyone contacting my doc without my permission.

  2. Brenda Titus November 4, 2014 at 2:50 PM

    Once again, I’m glad that Cal and I broke down this important topic! This one came to me from a viewer that I met at the convention…. I hope we were able to address her questions!

  3. Brenda Titus November 4, 2014 at 3:36 PM

    Excellent point Lydia, yes, you would want to get a reieaee from your client for you to speak to the doctor (and the doctor will need a release to speak with you).

  4. Penny Chiasson November 4, 2014 at 4:00 PM

    Hi Lydia,
    As part of Cal’s business start up pack, there is an information release form. I now have every client fill out that form, and if it is a non-clinical issue and they say no, then you don’t contact. Everything is done with the client’s permission. Hope this helps!

    Cal & Brenda, another great podcast! Great advice and clarity on the legal sticking points.
    Of course pain and some other issues require the doctor’s referral up front. But on smoking or losing weight or confidence building you wouldn’t need the referral up front. So, Lydia, you can ask for the client’s doctors name and number on the intake form…and have verbiage right there for permission to contact their doc. That makes follow up/intro to doc fairly easy.

    Thank you Cal and Brenda for this very helpful episode on getting medical referrals. This is something that is so important to understand yet it’s never been that clear to me on the different ways to go about it, probably because it’s different from state to state. I appreciated the idea of the courtesy call or letter, that’s very helpful. The better we can share our work with the medical community the more people we’ll be able to help, so thank you for covering this important topic.

  7. Cal Banyan, MA, BCH, CI, DNGH November 7, 2014 at 12:55 PM

    You are very welcome. And, I look forward to recording our next podcasts. We never seem to run out of things to talk about in this huge topic of hypnosis and hypnotherapy.
