In this final volume of his best-selling 'Inner' trilogy, Roger Neighbour explores the relationship between a doctor's professional and private selves. He suggests that the mind of every doctor retains an untrained 'ordinary human being' part - their Inner Physician - which makes an important, though often neglected, contribution to medical practice. This 'Inner Physician', which he also describes as the 'amateur within' or the 'expert minus the expertise', plays a major role in diagnosis and treatment, and is the chief source of insight, empathy and clinical acumen. Roger shows that skilled use of the Inner Physician is one thing that distinguishes the generalist from the specialist.

About the Author:

Roger Neighbour practised as a GP in Hertfordshire for 30 years and was for many years a trainer and course organiser. He was the RCGP's Chief Examiner from 1997 to 2002 and its President from 2003 to 2006. In 2011 he was made an OBE for services to medical education.

Review:

This last book in Roger Neighbour's 'Inner' trilogy is a real tour de force, a great conclusion to his lasting teaching gift to his profession, and I highly recommend it - Paul Main writing in Education for Primary Care, 2016, 27(3), 245-246. By writing this book, Roger Neighbour has successfully distilled a great deal of practical wisdom, acquired from a long and distinguished career of practising, teaching, and deep thinking about general practice - and, perhaps even more importantly, reminded us of the importance of being a curious, reflective and insightful human being - Ben Riley; This book is the distillation of (Roger Neighbour's) extraordinarily thoughtful career in general practice. In essence it is a gentle, careful explanation of the fundamental importance of the doctor's subjective self.' Iona Heath, foreword.

Book Description Royal College of General Practitioners, United Kingdom, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The Inner Physician deals with the relationship between different parts of the individual doctor s own mind. In the final volume of his Inner trilogy, Roger Neighbour, author of The Inner Consultation, explores the relationship between a doctor s professional and private selves. He suggests that the mind of every doctor retains an untrained ordinary human being part - their Inner Physician - which makes an important, though often neglected, contribution to medical practice. The Inner Physician, which he calls the amateur within or the expert minus the expertise , plays a major role in diagnosis and treatment, and is the chief source of insight, empathy and clinical acumen. Drawing on ideas ranging from Greek philosophy to catastrophe theory and quantum mechanics, but written in an engaging easy-to-read style, The Inner Physician makes a powerful case for humanity, thoughtfulness and self-awareness as hallmarks of the effective clinician. It will be challenging but inspiring to GPs at every career stage, and also to specialists keen to understand how their own work fits into medicine s big picture .Coming at a time when doctors are under pressure to function more as biomedical technicians than as caring professionals, The Inner Physician aims to help GPs rediscover their pride in the human aspects of their work with patients. Readers should be comforted and inspired to have confirmed what they always knew - that they themselves are an important factor in their clinical effectiveness. Seller Inventory # AAZ9780850844115
