Dr. William Bensen was a respected rheumatologist and mentor to many. He advocated strongly for team-based models of care and his own team in Hamilton (consisting of nurses and pharmacists) delivered exceptional care to his patients. The William Bensen Models of Care (MOC) Initiative was established to honour his legacy, and to promote models of care in other settings in Ontario.
