Talking with patients.
The title of this book by Professor James Calnan, Emeritus Professor of Plastic Surgery at the Royal Postgraduate Medical School, Hammersmith is, in itself, thought-provoking. Talking with – and not to – patients is what we should really be doing, listening to what they say (or wish to say but are too scared to voice). The lessons taught by Professor Calnan will help us respect the rights of patients. They will also help avoid much unpleasantness and ill-will.
