Product Description

Ten funny, powerful and revealing stories from the front lines of medicine

A magical midair conversation with a Down syndrome child. An unexpected and life-affirming friendship forged in palliative care. The shearer who lives to regret not taking his doctor’s advice.
This collection of vivid and honest stories illuminates life as seen through the eyes of ten family doctors, as they help their patients deal with the curve balls life has thrown at them.
From a young doctor facing general practice for the first time, to an old hand reflecting on a lifetime spent on the front lines of medicine, the authors of these stories have been privileged to witness human frailty and wisdom in a way that few non-doctors ever do.
The tales collected here are the result of a writing competition launched by Australian Doctor magazine, in which general practitioners were asked to share the inspirational and moving moments that have stayed with them throughout their medical careers.
Their funny, powerful and revealing stories capture the highs and lows that make the life of a general practitioner deeply challenging and ultimately rewarding.
