S1:E24: From Psychiatrist to hands-on caregiver

Riveting interview with Dr. Kleinman: From psychiatrist to hands-on caregiverDr. Kleinman is an American psychiatrist and a professor of medical anthropology and cross-cultural psychiatry at Harvard University. His new book, The Soul of Care: The Moral Education of a Husband and Doctor,” is out now with Penguin Random House. Here are some insights from our conversation: “I was previously unclear on how important the relationship was between doctors, family members, and people living with dementia.” “I really saw the failure of medicine. When you have cancer, you have a cancer team who helps you through the process…but neurologists don’t help you live with dementia.” You don’t want to miss this episode!
