Guest Blog: A Counter-Curriculum of Self Care, at the Arnold P. Gold Foundation

Check out my guest blog on the idea of the counter-curriculum in self care at the Arnold P. Gold Foundation blog.

The Gold Foundation is a great organization whose motto is: “Working to keep the care in health care.”

Similar to the message in my book, Re-humanizing Medicine, the Gold Foundation states “Humanistic medical care is not simply compassion. It is the best of medicine.”

They are a good resource for research on humanism and compassion in medicine. They offer grants to practitioners and researchers (my mate, Hilton Koppe – @doc_hilton – from Lennox Head Australia recently received a Gold Foundation grant for his work on poetry and medicine).

I discuss the counter-curriculum in my book and in this blog I talk a little bit about the background of how I came to the necessity of that idea.

“Sometimes the things you most need to learn are not taught in school.”
