Fast-forward to the present. For the past 4 years, I'e been part of a Veterans Affairs home-based, primary care multidisciplinary team, along with registered nurses, nurse practitioners (NPs), a psychiatrist, physical therapists, registered dietitians, pharmacists, social workers, and administrative staff. We confer frequently. Our weekly meeting is a lively review of shared patients. When a complicated question arises about how best to manage, say, an elderly patient with dementia while keeping him at home, the people whose expertise we require are in the room. Like any good team, we are greater than the sum of our parts.
