Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0412624303, Paperback)

Medical humanities is a method of promoting the discussion of health care issues by using literary texts. Poems, short stories and novels about illness can provoke us into discussing not only medical conditions but also the attitudes, emotions, and underlying cultural values of patients and carers. It helps students develop compassion and empathy. In professional practice, it develops and maintains reflective practice. The author defines and explains the nature of medical humanities. She then gives specific examples and case studies, and provides appropriate pieces of literature so that the reader can use this text as a source book.
