When Faith asked doctors Lauren Robertson, Emma Husain and Pranay Sinha what they would change in medicine, she expected to hear a chorus of sighs, and tales of red tape, bad policies and broken systems. What she heard instead made us reevaluate what it means to change and make change, answers that called for intimacy and real human connection as weapons in the crusade for better care.
And so the podcast that was supposed to be about “change” changed. Rather than examples of inhuman forces making the act of human care challenging, it became a story of how when faced with human problems, doctors and patients must become more human about the way they approach and solve them. With compassion, our first and only constant can truly be a change for the better. We are our only hope.
