Could multidisciplinary team arrangements be making patient care inefficient and doctors uninvolved?
A heading on the front cover of the Journal in 2011 (“Putting the love in — to patient care”) suggested that somewhere inside would be found an article relating to putting the love into patient care. Try as I might, I could not find the love, but instead found an article by Best on team care.1 His somewhat lukewarm support for team care revived my worst fears about it, as this, unfortunately, is the very model of a loveless modern medicine.
