Is there nothing to do yet? By José I. Ricarte

19 December, 2014|

The phrase "There is nothig to do" and hang the label of "terminal" to our patients are things that must be in the past. If the goal of Medicine is healing, total health, beauty or youth, we are all destined to fail. And if Society puts health professionals as soldiers against these battles, we will fight them with a very [...]

Laughs and good vibes! Extremely curious workshop, by Thedoctorwearsprada

11 December, 2014|

What I love the most of being a doctor is that it still has the hability to surprise me…and I think this will last forever!

We need a conversation or an activity with which to fill that space.In this we can learn a lot from animals. I am sure that [...]

Empathy 2, by José I Ricarte

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 [...]
