Praise for Bird’s Eye View
Bird’s Eye View should be on every health care training curriculum. This book opens the doorway to a new level of understanding of the health care journey.
- Professor Catherine Crock AM Physician, The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne, Professor, Deakin University
There are few people with Sue Robins’ breadth and depth of experience. There are fewer still with her insight. In Bird’s Eye View, lessons are served up with unblinking eyes, a firm hand and a gentle heart.
- André Picard, author of Matters of Life and Death
This extraordinary book is a must read for health care clinicians, scholars, individuals and families. This manifesto calls for greater compassion and kindness from health care providers at every level.
- Janice M. Bell, RN, PhD, Founding Editor, Journal of Family Nursing

As a parent and as a disabled woman, this book spoke to me. Sue doesn’t presume to speak for others as she challenges the world of health care to do better, to be better, by questioning why we need to continue doing things as they have been done.
I encourage people working in health care, regardless of their role, to read this book. But don’t just read it, take up the challenge that Sue Robins gives to you as a gift.
If you’re a caregiver or a patient, as I am, you may find solace & power in Sue’s words.
As a parent and as a disabled woman, this book spoke to me. Sue doesn’t presume to speak for others, instead,
As a former student of health care who understands that side of the equation, Sue describes her lived experiences in the manner of hearing a close friend sharing intimate life moments with openness and vulnerability over a cup of tea. I would highly recommend Bird's Eye View as a thoughtful reminder that gentle kindness, empathy and compassion are key components in overall healing, and the damage we do to people when humanity in health care is forgotten. As we will all eventually become caregivers of loved ones in the medical system or patients ourselves, Bird's Eye View points us in the direction we need to go.
This book was recommended to me by a professional and it did not disappoint.
