The Courage to Care: A Call for Compassion [9781784742980]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A vital and timely book about inspirational nurses, and the bravery of patients and families, from the bestselling author of The Language of Kindness

Nurses have never been more important. We benefit from their expertise in our hospitals and beyond: in our schools, on our streets, in prisons, hospices and care homes. When we feel most alone, nurses remind us that we are not alone at all.

In The Courage to Care bestselling author Christie Watson reveals the remarkable extent of nurses' work.

A community mental-health nurse choreographs support for a man suffering from severe depression.

A teen with stab wounds is treated by the critical-care team; his school nurse visits and he drops the bravado.

A pregnant woman loses frightening amounts of blood following a car accident; it is a military nurse who synchronises the emergency department into immaculate order and focus.

Christie makes a further discovery: that, time and again, it is patients and their families - including her own - who show exceptional strength in the most challenging times.

We are all deserving of compassion, and as we share in each other's suffering, Christie Watson shows us how we can find courage too. The courage to care.

Praise for Christie Watson:

'Let's be thankful for wonderful nurses - and writers - like Christie Watson' Jacqueline Wilson

'Christie Watson is a remarkable writer turning her attention to a crucially important conversation' Nathan Filer

'Christie Watson writes with the fullness of her heart to give us insight into the world of patients and nursing, inspiring us to recognise it is how we treat people, how we speak and respond to them, as well as what we do, that heals' Julia Samuel
