This summer we'll be playing some of your favourite White Coat Black Art episodes and ours. To launch our summer season on Monday we're rebroadcasting our season opener from 2008. It's part one of our two part series on Boundaries. Here's part of my original blog entry about that program.
Teacher, advisor, confidant, protector...words to describe your health professional that are comforting and comfortable. Try these words instead...friend, business associate...date...lover. Puts a whole new spin on the doctor-patient relationship.
On Monday, the first of a 2-part series on one of the most controversial issues on both sides of the gurney: exploring the boundary between health professional and patient.
Whether you know it or not, boundary violations happen all the time. If you've ever sat down to coffee with your physician, done some contracting for your physiotherapist or received a hug from your nurse that lasted a few seconds too long...you may have crossed a 'no-go' line. You may not have given this a moment's thought, but your health professional has. That's because the penalty to us for crossing the line can be anything from an admonishment to loss of license.
We talk to RM Vaughan, an author who wrote 'Troubled', a volume of poems that chronicles the affair he had with his psychiatrist. We also talk to an ER physician who treated a patient while he was a resident and then asked her out (as you'll find out, he's not alone). He thinks doctors who provide episodic or one-off care should be bound by the same rules as psychotherapists and family docs. And, we talk to two psychiatrists who argue about whether it's permissable for doctors to date former patients.
All summer long tune in to hear White Coat Black Art on Mondays at 11:30 am (3:30 pm NT) on CBC Radio One. Click below to listen to the show right now, or download the podcast.

A few weeks ago, we asked you to send us your questions about the health care system. You deluged us with emails, phone calls, tweets, and posts to our blog and our Facebook page. You wanted to know everything from why you need a referral to see the specialist you've been seeing for years...to why paramedics have to stand around in the ER waiting to offload their patients. You also wanted to know why hospital food can't be better and whether or not MDs ever do pro bono work.
Tune in Saturday at 11 am (11:30 am NT) and again on Monday at 11:30 am (3:30 pm NT) on CBC Radio One. Or click below to listen right now or download the podcast:

This week, we rebroadcast and update our "Sleepy Residents" show from last season. Dr. Brian Goldman speaks with a panel of residents about how sleep deprivation affects their health, and yours. You'll also hear from a hospital VP who tries to keep patients safe from fumbling, overtired doctors. And a long-time ER doc talks about his controversial fix for staying awake on those long night shifts.
Since the show first aired in September 2009, there's been some changes in the US when it comes to national guidelines for residents' work hours. And a decision made by a Quebec arbitrator last week regarding a grievence filed by two Montreal residents could soon change things here too. Quebec hospitals will have six months to eliminate 24-hour shifts for medical residents.
To hear more about doctors and sleep deprivation, tune in Saturday at 11 am (11:30 am NT) and again on Monday at 11:30 am (3:30 pm NT) on CBC Radio One. Or click below to listen right now or download the podcast:Read more »
