I think children and doctors are similar in their outlook: everyone is more or less the same.
I came to this conclusion while helping a child with their reading. We were going through a book called ‘How your body works’ and the concepts were clearly laid out in those small and colourful pages.
Everybody is a unique and special person and should be treated well.
We all look different on the outside.
We all have most of the same things inside of us that work the same way.
This made me think ...
What if doctors were to decide how to treat a patient having a heart attack or stroke depending on their hairstyle, their skin colour, their sexual orientation or their mobility? Would that be a good way to provide health care? The treatment needs to take in specific individual needs but generally, it’s the same approach and care process for all, isn’t it?
