How to break bad news : a guide for health care professionals by Rob Buckman( Book )

25 editions published between 1992 and 2016 in English and Japanese and held by 615 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For many health care professionals and social service providers, the hardest part of the job is breaking bad news. The news may be about a condition that is life-threatening (such as cancer or AIDS), disabling (such as multiple sclerosis or rheumatoid arthritis), or embarrassing (such as genital herpes). To date medical education has done little to train practitioners in coping with such situations. With this guide Robert Buckman and Yvonne Kason provide help. Using plain, intelligible language they outline the basic principles of breaking bad new and present a technique, or protocol, that can be easily learned. It draws on listening and interviewing skills that consider such factors as how much the patient knows and/or wants to know; how to identify the patient's agenda and understanding, and how to respond to his or her feelings about the information. They also discuss reactions of family and friends and of other members of the health care team. Based on Buckman's award-winning training videos and Kason's courses on interviewing skills for medical students, this volume is an indispensable aid for doctors, nurses, psychotherapists, social workers, and all those in related fields
Magic or medicine? : an investigation of healing & healers by Rob Buckman( Book )

10 editions published between 1993 and 1995 in English and held by 578 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Modern medicine is one of the most successful branches of science, with a distinguished history of conquering many of the twentieth century's deadliest diseases. Yet today people are turning in record numbers to alternative therapies that have little or no scientific basis. Herbalists, homeopaths, crystal therapists, chiropractors, acupuncturists, and countless other unconventional practitioners are enjoying thriving businesses. What accounts for this flight from reason in the face of hard evidence that medical doctors do a better job of treating disease and alleviating suffering than their alternative counterparts? In Magic or Medicine? Dr. Robert Buckman and Karl Sabbagh offer a response to this question by critically evaluating both alternative and conventional medical approaches to patient care. Drawing on some of the earliest written medical sources as well as their own investigations into current alternative therapies, the authors argue that healing has always been partly the science of clinical treatment (medicine) and partly an art (magic). Medicine may make the patient get well, but often it is magic that makes the patient feel well. With all the pressures under which they work, modern medical doctors often neglect the magic in their dealings with patients. Alternative therapists, however, frequently offer nothing but magic. Buckman and Sabbagh look closely at the claims made for both medical science and alternative treatments and discover a gap between the promises and the reality of each approach. Magic or Medicine? is a fascinating exploration of healing in the late twentieth century and vital reading for anyone concerned about the effective delivery of health care

S'asseoir pour parler : l'art de communiquer de mauvaises nouvelles aux malades : guide du professionnel de santé by Rob Buckman( Book )

8 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in French and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pour de nombreux professionnels de santé, la tâche d'annoncer de mauvaises nouvelles constitue la partie la plus difficile de leur travail. Les nouvelles peuvent porter sur un état où il y a risque d'une issue mortelle (cancer, sida), d'invalidité (sclérose en plaque, polyarthrite rhumatoïde) ou, tout simplement, de conséquences gênantes (herpès génital). Mais, jusqu'ici, ni les études médicales ni celles menant aux autres professions de santé n'ont eu le souci de préparer leurs élèves à faire face à des situations de ce type. C'est en vue de combler cette lacune que Robert Buckman et Yvonne Kason ont écrit ce livre. Ils énoncent, dans un langage simple et intelligible, les principes de base qui doivent présider à la communication de mauvaises nouvelles, principes réunis dans une méthode, ou protocole, qui se laisse facilement assimiler. Au coeur de ce protocole se trouvent les compétences d'écoute et de dialogue. Enfin les réactions des parents et des proches du malade ainsi que de celle des membres de l'équipe médicale sont étudiées
