From Detached Concern to Empathy by Jodi Halpern is an excellent book that explores the impact that clinicians have on their patients' experiences. This is a thick read, with philosophical discussions around empathy, sympathy, and the role of the clinician in modern healthcare settings. Should we maintain a cold, clinical view of our patients in order to make sound judgements in their care? Should we try to change our patients' minds if their choice does not support continuing to fight for life? Or do we respectfully comply with their decision? This thought-provoking book would be a fantastic book for new clinicians, including medical and nursing students, or for the philosophical reader.Was this review helpful?
