Summary Dr. Albert Viau has developed a national physician's assistant program to help solve the problem of rural health service delivery in Republica, a mountainous Central American country. However, his proposed solution has run into opposition from his colleagues and the health establishment. Viau presented a paper outlining the idea in detail to the 32nd National Medical Congress. Many physicians reacted violently against the idea. The case ends with a decision point for Dr. Viau. He was convinced the idea was a helpful solution to the problem but wondered if he took the right course of action. What should he do now?
