Description: In the late twentieth century the impressive achievements of modern medicine are obvious. Yet medicine seems to have failed to satisfy public expectations. Is there something wrong with medical research and practice? This book, written by a surgeon with more than 30 years experience of clinical medicine, examines what it is that doctors do, and what it is that patients expect them to do. It finds that in the face of uncertainty, expectation and reality often diverge. Starting from the communication difficulties that exist between doctors and patients, Humane Medicine explores the roles of science, ethics and the humanities in medical practice. It forcefully argues that more science cannot heal this rift nor can better education in ethics. To foster better communication, medical teachers must change their philosophy and methods, so that value-laden issues in clinical medicine are interwoven with the necessary science. Professor Little outlines some possible ways to achieve this.
