The chapters in Patient Care and Professionalism are ordered so that the main character in this book, the patient, has the first voice, followed by the ancient history of professionalism, the recent resurrection of professionalism in the United Kingdom (UK), and finally professionalism in the United States (US). The eleven chapters cover the various health care professions: medicine, nursing, public health, law, leadership, religion, and finally a chapter on the science of professionalism. The chapters are all written by internationally known experts. The authors share their collective experience to shine light on professionalism from a new angle, revealing the way to a new kind of relationship for patients and physicians of the future-a rebirth of trust borne in real collaboration. The volume begins with a discussion of what is meant by the term 'advocacy' in the practice of medicine, and then offers perspectives on where opportunities for medical advocacy lie, the rich collaborations they engender, and ways to overcome systemic barriers to advocacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The title says it all, this is patient focused and patient centred. . . This is a well written book with easy to read chapters and well referenced at the end of the chapters. [It] is a must for novices and experts, and is a must for any professional in contact with a patient. * Jane Brown, Patient Safety advisor, Worcestershire Acute NHS Trust; Nursing Times *
Individual essays are excellent from first to last, and readers are rewarded with a work characterized by mature insight and diverse perspectives that do not lose sight of the patient or the physician. Highly recommended. * Doody's Notes *
The scope of the book is wide and the editors goal of providing the reader with a concise, easy-to-read text which summarizes the complexities involved in patient care and professionalism has been achieved. Dr DeAngelis has clearly undertaken major editing of the chapters to present a consistent style while retaining the important specialist knowledge of her contributors... [The book contains] much illuminating and thought-provoking discussion about what professionalism should mean to any doctor. * British Journal of Anaesthesia *
