    The old fashioned model of medical care, still widely practiced, consists of a single family physician practicing solo. The pattern is now shifting to other arrangements, such as a group of physicians working jointly, with varying degrees of integration and sharing of staff and resources.

    It took a Supreme Court decision to make the ultimate decision on the fate of Hassan Rasouli, on life support at Toronto's Sunnybrook Hospital. The doctors said, pull the plug, the case is hopeless and he is brain dead. The family said otherwise, and the court came down on the side of the family. One wonders if an end-of-life discussion ever took place in the Rasouli family, to determine his wishes in a situation such as this. If not, perhaps such a discussion would have avoided this long and expensive legal battle. Recently, there was an on-line seminar on advance care planning from Carleton Rehab Solutions. The two presenters from VHA Home Health Care were Sue Grant, a nurse, and Jose Medeiros, a social worker.
