    Oxford University Press 2009; US$ 51.99

    When the first edition of this book came out in 2001 (under the title Evidence-based Patient Choice: Inevitable or Impossible?), it examined the emerging themes of patient choice and clinical decision-making, and looked at how these might develop in the future.

  • 101 Questions to Ask Your Doctorby Tom Smith

    SPCK 2012; US$ 13.11

    Questions that people want to ask their doctors vary tremendously! Sometimes they don?t even get asked as people are afraid of wasting the doctor?s time – or they may end up as the ‘hand on the doorknob? or the ‘while I?m here? type of question that gets popped out just as the patient leaves the surgery. Embarrassing, awkward, or trivial – whatever... more...

  • Talking to Your Doctorby Zackary Berger

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2013; US$ 23.99

    There are many reasons that poorer people are sicker people, but one that's often overlooked is miscommunication between doctors and their poorest, most marginalized patients. While it's usually the case that doctors are from Mars and patients from Venus, this is especially the case when there are gaps in language, culture, education and class. In... more...

  • The Good Doctorby Ron Paterson

    Auckland University Press 2013; US$ 21.88

    What makes a good doctor? Are there bad doctors out there – and if so how do we protect patients from them? Can we inject more information, more trust and more assured competence into the medical system to solve these problems? Drawing on his years of dealing with patient concerns, Ron Paterson tackles these important questions. The book makes challenging... more...
