Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They’re smart. They’re passionate. They’re doctors. White Coat Wisdom is an unprecedented look at the medical profession, through the eyes of extraordinary physicians who talk about what they do, how they got there, and why medicine is so much more than a job.

    You will discover:

• inside knowledge about disease prevention

• the secrets of total career satisfaction

• the ability to achieve success, no matter how daunting the challenge

• why service to others transforms work into a calling.

    White Coat Wisdom reveals how physicians from various specialties and locations developed their resolve, found their medical passion, and learned—and continue to learn—on their journey. Real doctors, real stories.

Book News Annotation:

US and Australasian scholars of nursing explore caring and culture through a variety of phenomenological, hermeneutic, and ethnographic approaches. Their topics include caring and self-harm, a personal dialogue, nursing people from other cultures, and the context in which student nurses learn the culture of caring.

Synopsis:

White Coat Wisdom is an unprecedented look at the medical profession, through the eyes of extraordinary physicians who talk about what they do, how they got there, and why medicine is so much more than a job.

 

Synopsis:

Many Voices explores the relationships and the tensions at the intersection of caring in the context of health, and culture. As the social voices of diverse groups are increasingly acknowledged in healthcare, ideological frictions between goals of assimilation and of diversity and multiculturalism remain unsolved. Caring (or its opposite, neglect) mediates in health-related encounters in ways that are often described more rhetorically than realistically. Here are the issues as they are experienced.
