White Coat Black Art CBC, Stories Will be Missed

Unfortunate news about the CBC programme "White Coat Black Art" hosted by Dr. Brian Goldman. From what I read, it looks like the show has been cancelled. I have posted about this show before and linked to a podcast interview with Goldman and "Dr. Cunningham" who spoke
about alcoholism, "the God complex" and his own spirituality. Hear podcast with Dr. Cunningham

Recently the show focussed on end of life issues and physician/patient communication.

As described, the programme, " explores the tension between hope and reality: between what patients want, and what doctors can deliver. Doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals explain how the system works, and why, with a refreshing and unprecedented level of honesty."

If you haven't had an opportunity to catch the programme the podcasts are still available at the CBC website.

If you like what you hear send an email to the CBC encouraging them to continue the programme "White Coat Black Art" again in the future.

Wishing "White Coat, Black Art" a quick return to the airwaves.
