without going to extremes o examples, i can remember 2 very intelligent girls who worked at HCA's at the practices i worked or. One HCA would make notes relating to patients concerns and emotional state, this would greatly help all of us treat the patient holistically, especially knowing that they have seen the HCA for longer duration both over the years and on each appointment. The other i came accross was so inclusive in her practice, was ready to pick up where other doctors and nurses have left and deal with issues correctly. I think intelligence and compassion is not determined by the position you hold in health care system.
