Abstract

This article describes an approach to nursing home physician care that allows physicians to play a more integral role in the long-term care culture change movement. Through a simple refocusing of the traditional clinical assessment and plan, the physician's role is shaped and redefined, support staff more clearly see how the physician may contribute to the effort, and residents and families are reassured that the entire care team is working together to improve the care provided.
