Abstract

Healthcare reform threatens to jeopardize the role of physicians in deciding what is appropriate care for their patients. Factors outside the doctor-patient relationship, such as a global budget and limited access, will exert increasing influence on the decision-making process, according to Dr Dewberry. In this commentary, he explores the roots of this dangerous trend and suggests that physicians take an uncompromising stance against it.
