The image of nursing: The handmaiden


See the latest AMA response to the IOM report on Nursing in the US. to see that the old rules still seem to apply. For so many doctors, teamwork means: 'lots of people doing what I say'. What a waste of collaborative and interprofessional potential. In the UK, facing billions of pounds worth of spending cuts, and in almost every other country where health funding will never be 'enough', the idea that we can just keep working away the way we have done for the last 20 or 50 years is just crazy.
