Description

So what's so special about doctors and their families? Many doctors feel that they are expected to give too much of their time to a medical career to the detriment of their family and their personal lives. This book is a practical guide to provide support and ideas on how to cope with stresses directly suffered or passed on from a relative or spouse. Written in a clear and practical style, using information collated from family members describing their feelings about having a doctor in the family, it provides unique and vital information on how to minimise the effects of having a medical career on the family. Essential reading for doctors, and their families.
