Abstract

The implications for the move towards systems to improve patient outcome and decrease mortality in hospitals are having a significant impact on the way we practise medicine, resulting in an emphasis, among other things, of constructing our care around the needs of patients, rather than rigidly practice medicine from within our own tribal boundaries, for example professional boundaries, medical specialty boundaries and geographical boundaries.
