Greg Henry speaking about emergency medicine

This is a lecture i recorded from the big medical conference I was at at the end of June. The guy speaking is a big name in emergency medicine circles. He’s quite theĀ rhetoricianĀ and reminds us of the humanity needed to be with sick people. Worth a watch even if you’re not a medic.

The drugs still don’t work

“the pharmaceutical invasion leads him to medication, by himself or by others, that reduces his ability to cope with a body for which he can still care.”

Ivan Illich
Medical Nemesis
1976
