Philosophy Of Medicine
“There is more to a patient than just the disease, much like there is more to an iceberg than the tip we can see above water. When practicing nursing and medicine, I take a holistic approach that encompasses multiple factors in a person’s life, such as social, economic and cultural factors.”
