This White Coat Black Art show aired in September 2011, but I hadn’t had a chance to listen to it yet. Click here to listen to Dr Brian Goldman investigate the phenomenon of nurse bullying. There is a great interview with Kathleen Bartholomew, author of “Ending Nurse-to-Nurse Hostility: Why Nurses Eat their Young and Each Other.” It certainly fits with what I’ve heard from nurses across Canada. An alarming situation.
Click here for the podcast version of this week’s show, featuring Daniel Carlat, author of the the new book “Unhinged: The Trouble with Psychiatry – A Doctor’s Revelations about a Profession in Crisis”, Dr Raj Sherman, the former Progressive Conservative member in Alberta who was recently booted from caucus because of his openly critical views of the government’s stance towards health care and overcrowding in ERs. Also on the show is Françoise Mathieu talking about chronic stress among health care workers and the cost of caring.
Françoise Mathieu participates in this radio show on physician burnout. Click here for Podcast of CBC’s White Coat Black Art, November 17, 2008.
