Poetry and medicine

A poem by Odyssey House Medical Director Dr. Anne Lifflander was recently published in the Journal of the American Medical Association (Volume 314, Number 4). Let us know what you think!

The Questioning Clinician

Is tender loving care-able
A measurable variable?
And do we have the power to detect
What could happen if we reject
The linear limits of cause and effect?
And try to avoid, if we are able
Only counting what we can label
Or would we simply lose our seat at the table?
