A succinct, if a rather depressing analysis of politics betraying the NHS.

In this review of Danielle Ofri's How Doctors Feel Arthur Kleinman calls for a different kind of physician and patient narrative

"that is as richly human on the side of the patient as it is about the clinician; that illustrates the divided feelings over what is at stake for patients and lay caregivers as much as for doctors; that sees patients and families as having active caregiving roles as well as their roles as sufferers; and that centres on the moral and emotional exchange in the patient-doctor relationship as the intersubjective locus of what taking care and giving care is about."

That would be one heck of a narrative to lay ones hand on.

However, if the naughty child tests the boundaries at every turn, there will be no point in improving the system

This should be an interesting and important read. Why has the NHS been so savagely attacked, has it been betrayed, by whom and how are some of the many troubling questions on my mind. Many of the contributors are on twitter and are worth following.

Diagnosis: an important part of what a doctor does; important for the sufferer to understand her predicament. The doctor moves to the next patient, but that person is left to grapple with the consequences of that diagnosis.

Lets wish that this Diwali light will shine onto those unexplored dark corners and bring warmth and comfort that only true caring can bring. 

Happy Diwali!

This is a very perceptive account of what happens when healthcare addresses wants instead of needs.

Amit Singh originally shared:
 
Dr Lipska wites: "We've created a healthcare system in which conversations about deescalating glycemic control are not only difficult but also not rewarded or even expected."

Same could be safely considered to be true for a lot of healthcare. The biggest challenge, I think, is to explore the many assumptions about quality of care we have formed over the years.
