Think Outside the Box!
"Literature allows us to access the human condition in all of its complexities." comments Dr. Amy N. Ship, faciliticator of reading groups for medical professionals. She feels that literature can help them think creatively, as well as, clinically. Gathering information in a new way will assist them in connecting with their patients. Hopefully, reading and discussing literature will cause clinicians to pause, process, reflect, and think outside of the box. What a great idea!
Dr. Ship has just won the Compassionate Caregiver Award from the Kenneth B. Schwartz Center, a Boston-based foundation that honors clinicians for humanizing medical care.
In this time of uncertainty, reading groups might break down barriers in so many ways.
Congratulations, Dr. Ship!
