Allergy to emotions

1 August, 2017|

When Pepa was informed that, due to the complications, she would be admitted in ICU from the ward, she told the health care professional that was attending she was afraid. The answer she received was: "Do you have any allergies?". Why this professional could not tune with the emotion transmitted and why was it ignored?. Sometimes we are afraid of [...]

- Intensivist on shift: "Prepare a bed to put a patient a BiPAP with acute lung edema".At the beggining, it was not a complicated admittance.

Empathy, by José I Ricarte

2 September, 2014|

Empathy seems to me one of the basic skills in the Humanization of Health. But, what is empathy?. Surely we could discuss much about the different definitions. Put in the role of the patient, something beyond understanding, try to learn and put the other´s shoes...and how is taught or how can we learn?. If we have never had an urinary [...]
