Communication: Doctor/patient- doctor/doctor

Communication, communication, communication – doctor patient/doctor doctor. Medical Journalists’ Association Open Book Award ‘Nothing Personal, disturbing undercurrents in cancer care’, Radcliffe Publishing, illustrates the fallout from communication issues.

‘Today’s patients continue to raise the same issues, but clinicians are now being encouraged to get in touch with their own feelings, so perhaps my story will be useful in helping them acknowledge the emotional and psychological disturbances that can affect both patient and doctor.’ – (introduction)
