Is the doctor-nurse game still being played?


Anonymous | 2-Nov-2011 8:39 pm Thank you - I instinctively agree with you. But the difference is what you refer to as 'the human touch'. And my problem, is that many nurses keep writing that they don't have the time, to pay much attention to providing 'the human touch'. They WANT to - but are PREVENTED from doing it by being too busy. Unless there is an OBSERVABLE difference in behaviour - something different when 'felt by the patient' - a different paradigm is irrelevant: it is a case of 'what I do' as opposed to 'why I do it'. mike, when you say 'An academic Doctorate is longer and takes more training.' I am not quite certain of that. You say it is true, but as I understand it you do not have either a medical or academic 'title' of Dr. I myself, have one of them - and I suspect that by the time a medical doctor's post-qualification examinations and training/learning are taken into account, your claim is wrong. I appears we will not agree on this point.
