Gasping for Air and Grasping Air in Medicine: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion on the Medical Frontlines
This book will examine the role and the opportunity for EDI advancement as a requisite in healthcare, particularly in the context of the professional landscape as this directly affects care delivery. It considers the problems of clinicians who continue to suffer the ill effects of being othered within a medical setting. It argues that clinicians lacking the awareness and skills necessary to engage in an EDI-informed manner with members of their professional setting and patients, and benignly unaware of their privilege cannot effectively deliver care. The goal is to engage readers in a more inclusive practice.
