The struggle to perform well is universal each one of us faces fatigue limited resources and imperfect abilities in whatever we do But nowhere is this drive to do better more important than in medicine where lives are on the line with every decision In his new book Atul Gawande explores how doctors strive to close the gap between best intentions and best performance in the face of obstacles that sometimes seem insurmountable Gawande s gripping stories of diligence ingenuity and what it means to do right by people take us to battlefield surgical tents in Iraq to labor and delivery rooms in Boston to a polio outbreak in India and to malpractice courtrooms around the country He discusses the ethical dilemmas of doctors participation in lethal injections examines the influence of money on modern medicine and recounts the astoundingly contentious history of hand washing And as in all his writing Gawande gives us an inside look at his own life as a practicing surgeon offering a searingly honest firsthand account of work in a field where mistakes are both unavoidable and unthinkable At once unflinching and compassionate Better is an exhilarating journey narrated by arguably the best nonfiction doctor writer around Salon Gawande s investigation into medical professionals and how they progress from merely good to great provides rare insight into the elements of success illuminating every area of human endeavor, In Being Mortal bestselling author Atul Gawande tackles the hardest challenge of his profession how medicine can not only improve life but also the process of its ending br br Medicine has triumphed in modern times transforming birth injury and infectious disease from harrowing to manageable But in the inevitable condition of aging and death the goals of medicine seem too frequently to run counter to the interest of the human spirit Nursing homes preoccupied with safety pin patients into railed beds and wheelchairs Hospitals isolate the dying checking for vital signs long after the goals of cure have become moot Doctors committed to extending life continue to carry out devastating procedures that in the end extend suffering br br Gawande a practicing surgeon addresses his profession s ultimate limitation arguing that quality of life is the desired goal for patients and families Gawande offers examples of freer more socially fulfilling models for assisting the infirm and dependent elderly and he explores the varieties of hospice care to demonstrate that a person s last weeks or months may be rich and dignified br br Full of eye opening research and riveting storytelling Being Mortal asserts that medicine can comfort and enhance our experience even to the end providing not only a good life but also a good end, No description available, No description available
