Document Summary

Long waits, insensitivity, apparently faulty diagnoses and treatments that have no effect are the stuff of these indignant stories. Refer to physician as provider because canadians receive their primary care from individuals other than physicians too like nurse practitioners etc. Even if not a nurse practitioner, nurses have an important role in medicine as they give treatment instructions and screen patients before they see the doctor. Np can work with or without a collaboration of a physician. Physicians supervise physician assistant, this role was introduced to overcome the shortage of physicians. Their duties are similar to a physician but are taught to know their limits and seek guidance from physicians. They can take medical histories, conduct physical examinations, diagnoses, treatment, ordering and interpreting tests, writing prescriptions and assisting in surgeries. Judging quality of care - criticisms of provider talk about useless stuff, little feedback and depersonalized care.
