The older person whisperer on compassion - (from seven demons)
Old Person Whisperer explains: This comic was part of a series I did called, "Seven Demons". Inspired by Lynda Barry (a comics artist who calls her work "auto-biofictionalography"), I drew comic strips about the things that persistently trouble me about being a doctor. Compassion is definitely one of my demons and this issue is particularly relevant in the light of Kate Granger’s legacy.
There are a million excuses why we aren't as compassionate as we should be as doctors. I'm interested in how we deal with the guilt when we fail to treat people in the way we are supposed to.
