Health Care Delivery

The role of the family physician in home care. A discussion paper.

Home care is not new to Canada. What is new is the rapid shift of acute care to the home setting. Increasingly, complex medical interventions are being transferred out of the hospital into the home without adequate consideration of medical management of the patient.

This is unfortunate as family doctors provide a large proportion of health care services in the community and are an important potential resource to enhance the effectiveness of home care.
