General Practitioners. The medical profession in the home care system is represented by general practitioners. In 1985 there were close to 6000 general practitioners, with an average practice size of about 2450 people (121). Due to the relatively small area of the Netherlands and the high population density, regional disparaties in list size are small. In contrast to more sparcely populated countries, rural areas in the Netherlands are densely doctored, even more so than a lot of urban areas, because general practitioners have extra income opportunities from dispensing pharmaceutical prescriptions and home deliveries (105).
One should also be aware of others who may provide care to people remaining in the home, including occupational and physical therapists, speech therapists, pharmacists, and hospital specialists (130;230). The policy conclusions presented in Section 7 are intended to begin to address these problems. An important policy report completed in 1987 by a Commission chaired by Professor Dekker made recommendations 47 addressed to some of the problems identified in this Section (50). In particular, the Commission pointed out the problems in the financing systems, specifying both the different system for different practitioners and the capitation payment system for general practitioners as problems.
Other specific aids may not be paid for by any source. It is difficult for the individual to know where to seek help. Equipment used in home care functions with limited professional supervision, which means that problems cannot be detected and addressed immediately. This indicates that special attention needs to be paid to construction of such equipment. Reliability should have the highest priority for equipment intended for use in the home. A final problem is that there are few provisions for teaching people (patients) and families how to use technology in the home.
