re: #522 Obdicut

Thanks. The shortage of primary care doctors is not going to go away anytime soon in the US, either, as long as we either have our bastardized private insurance system and/or the fee-for-service model of payment. It really needs to be addressed.

And this really is apropos of absolutely fucking nothing, except that a government grant paid for it (in Denmark) and I think that’s awesome:


What is going to happen is the shortage is going to be addressed by nurse practictioners, who will be given additional power to serve as GPs, the way it should have been ages ago. And doctors in the old boy network will howl with rage at the idea that nurse pracs are becoming their equal, and life will go on. :D
