Additional words of praise forSpeak Your Truth by Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN:

"Unprecedented, brilliant, and right on target! Kathleen Bartholomew has dared to speak the truth about one of the greatest threats we face in patient safety: Dysfunctional physician-nurse communication and relationships."
—John J. Nance, JD, Founding Member of the National Patient Safety Foundation

"Kathleen Bartholomew, a gifted nurse and teacher, explores many of the dysfunctional dynamics destroying the morale of healthcare professionals, and she does it with a fresh, deadly serious voice interspersed with delightful humor that also inspires change. This is a must read for physicians, nurses, or anyone trapped in a traditionally subservient role, regardless of whether that role is work-related or not."
—Allen R. Wyler, MD, neurosurgeon, author of Deadly Errors, a novel about medical errors

"Kathleen uses the vehicle of story, liberally seasoned with humor, to present imaginative and creative approaches to age-old problems with communications between nurses and doctors."
—Genevieve Bartol, RN, EdD, AHN-C(P), Professor Emeritus, University of North Carolina, Greensboro

"This book is a 'must read' for all those nurses who want to enhance communication with physicians to create healthy, productive collegial relationships and improve patient care. Ms. Bartholomew analyzes and interprets all too familiar personal stories using a backdrop of theory to help us understand why we find ourselves in distressing interactions with physicians and how we can take action to initiate a process of healing."
—Linda J. Westbrook, RN, PhD, Assistant Professor, Nursing Program, University of Washington, Bothell

"Kathleen's work illuminates and defines a murky and omnipresent problem that has a strangle hold on the heart of the nursing profession."
