    Thinking all Russians are communist is pretty racist.

    Hey and it allows you to disregard and form an opinion on an article without reading it so I guess it’s a big win for you.

    I didn't disregard it - I didn't even read it. Just commenting on the headline.

    I'm sure the article was totally radical and edgy, maaaaaaaan.

    I hate to link to any CNN garbage, but this is a MASTER CLASS in biased fake news hackery. I really have to give it up to Cooper's writers for this brilliant opening.

    What is the situation? President Donald Trump and NBA star Lebron James are engaging in a back and forth Twitter beef.

    Opening...

    "The President is once again lashing out at a well known African American public figure - NBA star Lebron James, who just opened a new school in Ohio."

    So what do we gather from this?

    -Trump is the one doing the attacking. Unprovoked? One sided? Why is Trump picking on this guy?
    -Trump apparently has a history of attacking African Americans. What's his deal? He must be racist!
    -Lebron James just opened a school. What a great guy! Why would the President attack a guy like that?

    And for the coup de gras, they included those key words "lashing" and "African American. What kind of imagery do those words together bring up in American history?

    I know people will think I'm on some Alex Jones shit, but I work in media and this is highly deliberate.

    So if you're standing up for CNN as some kind of beacon of truth, stop kidding yourself. They're in the same "fuck Trump" business as other entertainment entities like SNL, Colbert, Meyers, etc. They got out of the journalism business! Sad

    Nurses, nurse practitioners, family doctors and some specialists workers will all be working out of the same space / clinic. The idea is wrap around service that will better utilize the specific roles of each. For example, a nurse practitioner costs the system less, yet is able to offer much of the same medical services as a doctor.

    How it will all turn out, we will see.

    Okay I see your post now - obviously I posted without seeing it.
    But ... what the hell does that have to do with my post?
    I know you're not suggesting that because someone reality show-related died (in Trump tower), I can't post about this:

    You wouldn't actually be suggesting such a thing right? Right????

    Cos if so,

    According to CBC it's 200 doctors, 200 NP's and 30 university students training for NP positions. What they're proposing is exactly how a hospital runs, but in a walk in clinic type setting, and I understand why they're looking at the approach. But it isn't going to be the solution to 700k+ British Columbians who can't get a family doctor. The solution is more doctors, always has been, always will be. Government interference will always prevent that from happening.

    You should take all your weird selfies and compile them into a coffee table book. I will help you publish it. It will sell.

    Those 200 NP's can do 75% of the work a doctor could do. Not all visits to a doctors office require a doctor. So aside from increasing doctors in the province, I think this is a good start towards providing more residents with regular medical professionals and family doctors.

    For more doctors to happen, we either need to start increasing the seats available in medical schools or up the funding going towards recruiting foreign family doctors & streamlining the process of getting credentials recognized.

    Let's for the sake of argument say they are doctors, and they're hiring 400 more doctors. Do you think that's enough to fill the need of the 800 000 people without doctors?

    I'm just an unfrozen caveman, but I'm pretty sure having a doctor is a prerequisite for a "doctor's office" otherwise, it's just a regular office.

    As I said, I don't profess to be an expert on the healthcare of another province, but from what I've read what you're saying here is the opposite of the intended effect. The point is to give people a place to go when they can't get in to see a doctor, but it isn't an "emergency." These doctors and nurses are actually being brought on for what are called "urgent care centers"

    The reason we don't have enough family physicians is directly related to lack of capital to invest in having more doctors. There are fewer residency positions than there are graduates last I checked, and of those who do complete their education most don't want to be family doctors because comparatively it's more work for less pay, and that's a big deal when you're loaded with student debt.

    No, I dont.

    I think the introduction of NP will help though.

    A doctor works in the doctor's office, he just doesn't have to see all patients who walk through the door.

    If you can employ 5 nurse practitioners for the equivalent cost of 3 doctors, I think mixing them into the team is an efficient and effective move.

    I agree. Income is a large factor in med students deciding against family practice as is the downfall of the individual service care model each province uses. With that said, medical school in Canada is still under producing for our needs. More seats and training opportunities need to be offered, along with, increased funding.
