"Bird’s Eye View is a compelling book of stories sharing a life lived in health care [firstly as a health administrator and writer, secondly as the mother of a child with Down syndrome and thirdly as a patient herself, with breast cancer]. Written for health professionals - but accessible to all - each chapter offers insight into how it feels to be a vulnerable patient. Poignant and provocative, this unique book highlights the patient and family experience and includes practical wisdom to inspire us all." - BOOK JACKET "Bird's Eye View should be on every health care training curriculum. This book opens the doorway to a new level of understanding of the health care journey - Professor Catherine Crock AM Physician, The Royal Children's Hospital Melbourne."
