9781566391924: Complex Sorrow: Reflections on Cancer and an Abbreviated Life

Argues that error is an intrinsic feature in medicine - an experimental and uncertain activity. This collection of the author's personal and professional writings on the phenomenon of error in medicine chronicles a young scholar's courageous struggle to make sense of a tragic coincidence.

From the Publisher:

The last work of a scholar whose life mirrored her work

From the Author:

"Strangely, my knowledge of error has helped me deal with the errors in my care. Had I not known about the prevalence of error in medicine I would not have been able to process what has happened to me without bitterness. But I had thought these matters through already, and more than once. I now live out the complex sorrow I have before described."
—Marianne A. Paget
