'With intelligence and keen insight based on extensive clinical, organisational and life experience, Drs Leanne Rowe and Michael Kidd deliver a powerful wake-up call to doctors. Writing with warmth and empathy but no holds barred, they ask us to 'get our own house in order' for the benefit of all involved. I believe that doctors throughout the world will appreciate their efforts and resonate with the quality and character of the work'.
Professor David Bennett, The Children's Hospital at Westmead, Australia
'Every Doctor' is about thriving in medicine at a time of massive advances and changes in global health systems and medical services. A medical career requires personal fortitude, courage and humility, and this invaluable book shares practical solutions to inevitable challenges through the stories and wisdom of experienced doctors. The authors recognise that while individual resilience is essential, so is the ability to influence change by challenging negative medical cultures and 'out of touch' models of leadership. By collaborating, every doctor can:
- improve their physical and mental health to provide patient care of the highest standard;
- work with colleagues to create a healthier and happier medical culture; and
- lead and influence positive changes in their workplaces every day.
The book is a must-read for doctors of all specialties at all stages of their careers wherever they practise in the world, because exemplary care of patients, peers, profession and self is a lifelong journey.
