The chapters in Patient Care and Professionalism are ordered so that the main character in this book, the patient, has the first voice, followed by the ancient history of professionalism, the recent resurrection of professionalism in the United Kingdom (UK), and finally professionalism in the United States (US). The eleven chapters cover the various health care professions: medicine, nursing, public health, law, leadership, religion, and finally a chapter on the science of professionalism. The chapters are all written by internationally known experts.

The authors share their collective experience to shine light on professionalism from a new angle, revealing the way to a new kind of relationship for patients and physicians of the future-a rebirth of trust borne in real collaboration. The volume begins with a discussion of what is meant by the term "advocacy" in the practice of medicine, and then offers perspectives on where opportunities for medical advocacy lie, the rich collaborations they engender, and ways to overcome systemic barriers to advocacy.

Review:


"When I graduated from medical school, I took an oath like so many members of the health profession. This oath was my pledge to practice for the benefit of my patients and my bond to uphold the highest standards of ethical behavior in the practice of medicine. In many ways, the taking of this oath was the final ceremonial step to entering the profession. Like most of my colleagues, I have used my own ethical values, beliefs, life experiences and observations of peer norms as guides to fulfilling that oath. Patient Care and Professionalism is an in-depth look at what it means to be a health professional and at the role professionalism plays in defining the obligations of health professional practice. It is important reading for those of us in the health professions and an essential guide to a better understanding on how to be faithful to our pledges."
-- Georges C. Benjamin, MD, Executive Director, American Public Health Association


"Every generation of health professionals needs to re-examine and re-affirm the principles of professionalism that bring meaning to the delivery of health care. This comprehensive, informative, and inspiring volume offers a clear guide to the standards of behavior and ethical responsibilities of all health professionals. The authors convey valuable insights into the meaning of professionalism that would benefit every doctor, nurse, dentist, and other health practitioner-and their teachers."
-- Harvey V. Fineberg, MD, PhD, President, Institute of Medicine


"This superb collection of 11 essays invites readers to reflect on patient care and professionalism from multiple perspectives: experiential, historical, political, legal, religious, and scientific, among others. Longer, more technical discussions abound, but this small book offers a summary that does not diminish the complexity or humanity of patient care and professionalism. Individual essays are excellent from first to last, and readers are rewarded with a work characterized by mature insight and diverse perspectives that do not lose sight of the patient or the physician. Highly recommended." -Frank R Ames, Ph.D., Doody's Health Sciences Book Review
