By McInnes, Himali
Stories of life, death and unforgettable clinical cases A psychiatrist and a patient with supernatural connections. A plastic surgeon and a Whakaari/White Island volcanic eruption survivor. A trauma therapist caught in the aftermath of a violent methamphetamine episode. The Unexp...ected Patient is a book about patients who impacted their health carers in unforgettable ways: patients who showed stubborn perseverance on the road to recovery, hope in the face of unexpected trauma, and the fathomless depths of the human spirit.
