Rated 0

Autobiography: science, technology & medicine, Medical profession, Women's health

With true stories of silencing, neglect and injustice, Dr Rageshri Dhairyawan opens the lid on the real-life, devastating impact of medical bias and offers a new way forward.

Have you ever felt unheard by your doctor?

When Dr Rageshri Dhairyawan was admitted to hospital as a patient she didn't receive the pain medication that she requested, despite her having been a doctor for 20 years. It was in that moment she understood that something was deeply wrong with our healthcare system. Doctors aren't listening, and it is making us unwell.

In this book, Dr Dhairyawan takes us on a journey to show how not listening to patients has been ingrained in medicine since its inception. Western medicine has been built on the assumption that power should always lie with the doctor, and that patients should be powerless to decisions made about their bodies if they are made to make them well. This, alongside the prejudices of society, has led to dramatic gaps in medical knowledge.

Dr Dhairyawan offers a way to reshape our health system for a future where active and engaged listening is the new frontier.

A timely, shocking and engaging expose of the medical world, this book is a much-needed prescription for change.
