New Call for Stories: Doctor in the Family: Stories and Dilemmas Surrounding Illness in Relatives

Symposium editor, Lauren Smith, MD

Doctor in the Family

Doctor in the FmailyNarrative Inquiry in Bioethics will publish a collection of personal stories from physicians who have dealt with illness in family members. It can be difficult to navigate personal and professional roles for doctors when relatives are sick. The lines are often blurred between the simultaneous roles of physician and loving family member or caregiver. Unique ethical issues can arise.

We are soliciting true, personal stories about dealing with illnesses in relatives. These could be mild, chronic, or terminal conditions. Please share this invitation and guide sheet with possible authors.

Deadline for proposals is May 1, 2017
