Tune in this week for this popular episode from last season. More about the show in a moment. Next week, we have the all-new episode of White Coat Black Art you've been waiting for! We've gathered up your complaints, brickbats and peeves about something that hits us in our hearts and in our wallets: hospital parking. If you've been parking your frustrations, have we got a show for you. We'll have more details on the blog next week.
Now about this week's show. All relationships have their ups and downs, and not every doctor-patient relationship is a marriage made in heaven. In medical school, they teach us the proper technique for firing patients. But there's nothing on the curriculum about what to do when patients fire us.
Two GPs share paintful experiences of being given the pink slip by patients when they least expected it. A patient advocate and social scientist dishes her techniques for giving doctors the heave-ho. We also show how patients and doctors can repair a health care relationship gone wrong. I talk with a doctor from the States about how he took a bad online review from a patient to make his practice better.
Our show airs Saturday at 11:30 am (12:00 pm NT) and again on Monday at 11:30 am (3:30 pm NT) on CBC Radio One. Or click below to listen now, or download the podcast:
