About this product
- DescriptionThrough the centuries doctors have developed t only kwledge and experience, but also an understanding of feelings, emotions and ethical issues: the Science and the Art. Because of these parallel understandings they can learn the practices they need, and put them to use while ensuring the full involvement of the patient. In this book Professor Sir Kenneth Calman looks at public health and the practice of medicine, examining perceptively and with lively illustrations from the great names of Scottish literature, from the 18th century to the present day, the developing role of doctors in society and their relationship with their patients. Based on research for his M.Litt in Scottish literature thesis at Glasgow University, Kenneth Calman's A Doctor's Line is based on the idea of a 'commonplace' book for professionals, the public and patients.
