Citing an article published online in October in the journal PLoS Medicine, Denise Grady points out that cancer care varies widely from hospital to hospital. The same goes for about any type of specialized care. Some places simply do it better than others.
Skill increases with practice. This is the reason medicine is so specialized. You wouldn't want a heart surgeon performing your brain surgery, right? Likewise, you wouldn't want a intensive care physician overseeing your palliative care. You would most likely want a physician experienced in doing what you need done.
The question is, should your physician be required to inform you if there is a better hospital, clinic, health care agency, or physician elsewhere? The answer may seem clear but Grady points out opposing views from physicians and bioethicists. Take a look at her article and share your thoughts here.
