Today we live in a world where the monopoly of information of professionals has been shattered forever. So the only ways to combat misinformation is being updated and provide accurate and authentic information. This blog basically summarises the growing use of the search for authentic information via digital health platforms like Hidoc Dr by the practioner’s to keep them updated.
We believe that one way of squaring the circle would be for GPs to make greater use of the wider primary care team, including nurses, pharmacists and allied health professionals, thereby enabling doctors to focus on what they can do best, such as the assessment and management of poorly differentiated symptoms. Whether current reforms, designed to introduce choice and competition into general practice, will deliver benefits is less certain; or to be more precise, whether the probable improvements in some aspects of general practice (e.g. responsiveness) might be at the expense of problems in other areas (e.g. equity) remains to be seen.
