David Shafer will introduce the work of Alastair Santhouse, a consultant psychiatrist and author of Head First: A Psychiatrist’s Stories of Mind and Body. Santhouse argues that specialisation in medicine inhibits more than it delivers in diagnosis. The quest for precision disables doctors in their understanding of their patients’ wider needs and concerns.
