Abstract

Objective: There are some suggestions regarding the methods of consultation practice in the literature including which case will be consulted, to whom, by which transport means, the payment methods as well as the ethical issues. There are no standards for consultations in Turkey. The standardization committee of the Federation of Turkish Pathology Societies has conducted a survey to detect the current situation, determine the problematic aspects, compare the situation with international methods and offer methods specific to Turkey.
