Product description

Product Description

A renowned diagnostician shares stories of his patients and explores the importance of the human factor in medicine.
 
In The Art of Medicine, Toronto Western Hospital’s internist Dr. Herbert Ho Ping Kong draws on his vast dossier of personal cases and five decades as a clinician to examine the core principles of a patient-centered approach to diagnosis and treatment.
 
While HPK, as he is fondly known, recognizes and applauds the many invaluable innovations in medical technology, he makes the point that as disease and its management grow increasingly complex, physicians must learn to develop an arsenal of more basic skills, actively using the arts of seeing, hearing, palpation, empathy, and advocacy to provide a more humane and holistic form of care.
 
Aimed at medical practitioners, aspiring doctors, or anyone interested in health and medicine, this book also contains interviews with more than a dozen of HPK’s patients, as well as short essays that explore the thinking of his professional colleagues on the art of medicine.

About the Author

His practice has focused on difficult diagnostic problems for which he has a national reputation. Michael Posner was a feature reporter for the Globe and Mail for 15 years, has written five books, two plays, and won a Genie award for best supporting actor in a movie.
