What is art in medicine? What is healing?
John Graham-Pole’s second memoir asks: What is the true nature of healing? Healing by Intent explores clinical, ethical, philosophical and spiritual issues through stories of young people who survived illnesses that threatened their lives—and those who tragically did not survive.
John writes: “The best doctors bring to their work compassionate objectivity, especially in the care of dying patients…The opportunity to draw so close to another offers healing for both care giver and care receiver.”
“Healing By Intent lifts a veil to offer glimpses into the intimate interactions between doctor and patient in the subtle dance of healing. These interactions are brilliantly captured in this memoir”
