Please Don't Break My Other Leg! is a guide to improving communication between health care professionals and patients.

Industry Reviews

Her book explores the relationship between health professionals, patients and their visitors, and looks at factors that can enhance and hinder empathy, providing useful examples that could form the basis for workshops on communication skills. . . . This book will be particularly interesting to clinical nurses.--Nursing Times
