Dr Steele pointed me in the direction of this article from JAMA that was written back in 1927. Although not directly related to the world of Nephrology, it contains advice on building a relationship with your patients and the importance of a proper bedside manner that remains just as relevant today as it was 84 years ago. Even then there was a sense that the younger generation was becoming too caught up in the science of medicine and had lost sight of the “art”. So each generation worries about the next… It makes for good reading this holiday season and helps put all of what we do in perspective.
