Their experience is necessary in mediating complex and difficult situations in a population with high expectations and stringent regularly standards.
The goal is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for patients for routine and ongoing procedures and conditions that other physicians do not have to interpret. With this in mind, the role, responsibilities, and accountabilities of physicians are never more important than when it is for patients in situations with complex health conditions that require specialized care.
