Bedside Manner--A Practical Guide To Interacting With Patients, is a book long overdue. Although advances in medical science occur daily, the act of genuine compassion is rarely seen. This book defines bedside manner far beyond the doctor-patient realm and expands the concept to where it really lies--with all who contact the patient. Providers and staff alike can find benefit through enhancing personal communication skills and ultimately refining the art of their trade. No matter where patients go for care or what specialty they need, this topic permeates all facets of medicine. Bedside Manner provides clear, understandable examples of good and bad healthcare interactions and ways to avoid common pitfalls.
Have you ever wondered what life is like on the other side of the stethoscope? Combining the grace and precision of a poet with a down-to-earth, compassionate manner, physician and NPR commentator David Watts reveals what it's really like to be a doctor today. From difficult diagnoses, irreverent colleagues, brave survivors, and examining room embarrassments, Watts uncovers the world of contemporary medicine and shares the emotional truths and practical realities at the heart of every doctor-patient relationship. Watts's warmhearted and understanding attitude toward his patients-- and their foibles-- is evident on every page of this surprising, poignant, and intimate look inside the life of a doctor who could very easily be your own.
Nursing embodies the seemingly timeless characteristics of feminine healing, caring, and nurturing, yet this archetypally female vocation also boasts a distinctive and complex history. Bedside Matters traces four generations of Canadian nurses to explore changes in who became nurses, what work they performed, and how they organized to defend their occupational interests. Whether in the apprenticeship method of the early twentieth century or in the present day restructuring of hospital work, the position of nurses within the health-care system has been structured by class, gender, and ethnic and racial relations. Located between the doctors and untrained or subsidiary patient-care attendants, nurses have struggled to define the boundaries of their occupation vis à vis other members of the health-care hierarchy, even as tensions between bedside and administrative nurses created divisions within nursing itself.Focusing on the daily labours of 'ordinary nurses', McPherson argues that the persisting sex-typing of nursing as women's work has meant that gender consistently complicated nursing's easy categorization as either professional or proletariat. Combining archival records and oral histories, the author shows how nurses, in their work, activities, and social and sexual attitudes, sought recognition as skilled workers in the health-care system.Previously published by Oxford University Press
