The sciences don’t address the big, human questions that arise when patients face suffering and death, nor is there a ready formal curriculum to help emergency physicians examine their own values, frailties, and capacity for compassion and tolerance.
“Humanities at the Bedside” was prepared by ACEP’s Medical Humanities section as a gesture to fill those gaps. With the support of an ACEP section grant, we aspired to create a space for issues common to our practice that might keep us up at night, that we mention in passing to our colleagues at sign-out, or keep bottled up inside.
