Everyone gets to be a patient sooner or later. Almost everyone has some experience of being misunderstood by doctors; encounters with difficult doctors; of relationships burdened with mutual bafflement, hostility and pain. Every doctor is haunted by memories of difficult relationships with patients, of the decisions made, and the outcomes that followed. People whom, despite all of their patience, persistence, the best communication, diagnostic and reasoning skills, they haven't helped. People for whose unique suffering it seems medicine has nothing to offer. Dr. Peter Dorward explores the many ethical dilemmas that GPs must face every day, to explain why it is that despite vast resources, time, skill and dedication, medicine is so often destined to fail. His recollections include his worst failures and biggest challenges, ranging from the everyday, the tragic, the grotesque, the villainous and the humorous. The Human Kind presents a fresh understanding of the difficult relationship between doctor and patient, and the challenges which both must face.

  1. Underbar bok
    Inger, 11 oktober 2020

    Fängslande, spännande och nyansrika berättelser där författaren vinnlagt sig om att förstå eller åtminstone betrakta från olika perspektiv.
    Varm och hoppfull, fastän boken berör riktigt mörka, dystra och svåra fall och öden. Inspirerande och tankeväckande.

  2. Varma berättelser om att vara människa
    Michael Forsberg, 19 december 2019

    Oumbärlig och ständigt fängslande, inspirerande läsning för oss som arbetar med sjukvård på gräsrotsnivå. Klok, välskriven, njutbart språk! Avgränsade berättelser centrerade kring ett patientfall men med många filosofiska och livserfarna utvikningar. Jag vill inte den ska ta slut! Rekommenderas!

Moving, compassionate and beautifully written - this book illuminates general practice the way Henry Marsh has illuminated neurosurgery. Dorward's stories from his practice are subtle, eloquent and told with great integrity. He doesn't shy away from confronting some of the most difficult challenges in medicine. But he carries the reader through with verve, imagination and great humanity. I loved it. -- Gavin Francis * author of Adventures in Human Being * Peter Dorward has created a moving and thought-provoking insight into complexities of contemporary general practice * Dr. Jed Mercurio, writer/producer of Line of Duty, Cardiac Arrest and Bodies * ...funny, edgy, moving, it ambushes you with sudden kindnesses and flashes of human resilience and goodness. -- former BBC researcher and reporter * Allan Little * wise and illuminating... a compelling and beautifully written account of learning to be a doctor * Sunday Express * This wise and illuminating collection of case histories examines the many ethical dilemmas that doctors face every single day * Sunday Express * Dr Dorward describes, with sensitivity and acute insight, the ethical and emotional dilemmas doctors face every day. * The Daily Mail *
