This week on Nurse Talk Radio we had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. Rana Awdish about her book In Shock: How Nearly Dying Made Me a Better Intensive Care Doctor. In Shock, is Dr. Awdish's searing account of her extraordinary journey from doctor to patient, during which she sees for the first time the dysfunction of her profession’s disconnection from patients and the flaws in her own past practice as a doctor. Shatteringly personal yet wholly universal, it is both a brave roadmap for anyone navigating illness and a call to arms for doctors to see each patient not as a diagnosis but as a human being.
