This article discusses the concept of care in patient-healthcare provider relationships. The author argues that skills and attitudes required by the practice of "caring for" a patient, something traditionally confined to nursing, should also be extended to the domain of medicine. She argues that physicians should not only recognize and respond to this distinct sens of care, but also that such recognition and the responsibilities that accompany it ought to extend to other professions outside of the health care domain.
