Is the doctor-nurse game still being played?


michael stone | 2-Nov-2011 10:17 am The argument being that nurses generally approach things from the patient's perspective and give the human touch whereas doctors approach from the task perspective. Before anyone gets up in arms I know that is a generalisation but I still believe a nurse gives more rounded, holistic care than a doctor. It is reminiscent of the old adage.....its not what is done but how it is done and the same physical action does not always give the same psychological effect.
