Currently I am using codes below to get a page's controller from a page:

//check page existence
$pagename = 'ContactPage';
if($page = DataObject::get_one($pagename)) {

//check method existence
   $page_controller = $pagename . '_Controller';         
   $page_controller = new $page_controller;                                    

   if ($page_controller->hasAction('confirmationEmail')) {      
      return Controller::join_links($page->AbsoluteLink(), 'confirmationEmail');                     


Is there any more effiecient method?
